An apparent postal snafu resulted in a Chicago-area woman receiving personal Christmas gifts sent from President Obama and his family intended for the godmother of Sasha and Malia.
Alane Church told WLS News that she received a box of Christmas gifts late because of damage during the shipping process. When the package arrived, it included an already opened second box inside including personal gifts from the first family.
In a subsequent interview with NBCs Today show, Church said the box included a "beautiful, personal" picture book featuring pictures of Sasha and Malia Obama.
She told the network the album featured "very special, private moments of their year of 2013 together."
Parts of the old box were in this toilet paper box that the post office repackaged, she said. In the bottom of the box was this extra gift. And we were reading the tag, trying to figure out, you know, where this came from, and it was opened.
WLS reported that the package included a gift tag saying the presents were to Mama Kaye and Papa Wellington from Barack, Michelle, and the girls.
Kaye Wilson is the Obama daughters godmother, and a longtime friend of the first family.
The White House confirmed that the package was from the first family to the Associated Press.
Church told NBC that she plans to mail the book along to Wilson.

The post office screws up again. What’s new?
So theyre out a neat gift of all the abbott and costello movies on region 2 dvds. So what?
As Christmas gifts, they gave away pictures of themselves.
The Post Office is screwing up? That explains getting a package delivery slip in my box, then having the guy at the counter tell me nothing has been delivered for that box. It usually takes a bit of polite persistence to get him to check around and find that I did in fact receive a package as the slip indicated. This only happens 60% of the time. But, no, I never noticed them screwing up before.
It was a shitty gift
from a shitty couple.
Any White House merchandise included?
Well, it wasn’t ALL selfies of Barack so it isn’t as bad as it could have been. It DID have the girls.

The Churchill bust?
Butt I thought it was to the godmother. /s
The toilet paper box is very fitting.
Yeah, they're giving him due respect. Michelle needs to lighten up.
Well, it was described as a personal gift.
I noticed that line too. Just a small token of his appreciation for all the hard work they do covering up his scandals for him.
Yep. I can’t wait until they are running our health care. It’s going to be AWESOME!
