Obamas vacation in Hawaii for holidays

December 23, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
President Barack Obama is in his home state of Hawaii for a Christmas vacation. He arrived Thursday just before midnight local time and headed to the rented ocean front home in Kailua Bay where the first lady and his daughters have been staying since Saturday.

The president pushed back his departure to stay in Washington due to all of the action on Capitol Hill.

He plans to visit with family and friends during the 10-day trip.

This is the third straight year the Obamas have spent Christmas in Hawaii.
