First Family celebrates Christmas in Hawaii

Honolulu (AP) _ After spending a quiet Christmas morning with his family, President Barack Obama attended church services at a Marine base near his rented Hawaiian vacation home.

The Obamas made the short drive to the chapel at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. The President dressed casually in dark khaki pants and a short-sleeve blue shirt, and his wife and daughters donned sundresses for Christmas services.

The Obamas have been spending the holiday with a small group of friends and family, including the President's sister, who lives in Hawaii with her family.

On Christmas Eve, the President made phone calls to 10 service members stationed around the world, two from each branch of the military. The White House said he thanked them for their service and the sacrifice of being away from their families at the holidays.
