The former First Lady took to Instagram to pen the sweet message: "Happy Thanksgiving from Sunny and our entire family! We hope you all have a wonderful day, giving thanks for everyone you love." The snap showed the pet pooch sitting outside in the garden in front of a white wall decorated with a garland that read 'Happy Thanksgiving' with colourful leaves hanging above. A small chicken bone toy was placed at Sunny's feet so he could feel like part of the family feast!

Barack and Michelle made the decision to stay in Washington after his presidency so that their youngest daughter Sasha could complete her high school education. They bought a nine-bedroom Tudor-style mansion that spans 8,500-square-feet and sits on a quarter-acre of land.

The family also have an $11.75 million mansion in the celebrity haunt of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, complete with seven bedrooms, two guest wings, and an outdoor swimming pool. It sits on a sprawling 29-acre estate with beautiful sea views, and even has its own private beach and boathouse.

Michelle's most recent post comes just hours after she posted photos of herself in New York to promote the Girls Opportunity Alliance. She wrote in the caption: "The holidays are a perfect time to give back—and the truth is, there is no greater gift than education. That’s why I was thrilled to ring in the holidays in New York with the @GirlsOpportunityAlliance and celebrate the talents and potential of adolescent girls around the world. So as we enter the season of giving, let’s all do our part to make sure that every bold and brilliant girl across the globe gets the opportunities she deserves.

"We’ve got to act fast, because the pandemic has put the education of millions of girls at risk—and we simply can’t afford to miss out on their talents, ideas, and dreams. I hope you’ll join us this holiday season to help girls around the world at the link in my bio. Every single contribution can make a difference for a girl—and for all of us."
