Reporting from Honolulu — Christmas morning began early for the Obama family, which is vacationing in a rental home in Kailua, on the east side of the Hawaiian island of Oahu.

The White House said the Obamas exchanged Christmas gifts at 8 a.m. They ate breakfast and sang Christmas carols before leaving for church at a nearby Marine Corps base.

Obama wore a navy polo shirt and khakis, while the first lady wore a white dress with an orange band around the waist, according to the media pool report. Michelle Obama and her two daughters wore their hair in buns.

The day is shaping up to be a quiet one for the Obamas. The White House said the first couple would visit with service members on the base and later celebrate Christmas with a private dinner at home.
