Little boy gets tongue-tied during Obama's festive visit

Travis Quezon

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle took time out from their Hawaiian vacation to drop by a Marine Corps base, where they greeted service men and women.

Mr Obama, who has otherwise kept a low profile during the 11-day family holiday, visited the same base last year.

The Obamas shook hands and chatted with Marines and their families for about 40 minutes.

"Did you get everything you wanted?" Mr Obama asked one little girl, who brandished a bracelet, prompting the president to point out a presumably new bracelet on Michelle's wrist.

The Obamas' own Christmas dinner at their oceanfront vacation home consisted of steak, roast potatoes and green beans.
