The kids came in with their parents from Maryland, Virginia and DC for Halloween at the White House.
Mrs. Obama wore furry cat ears and a leopard-patterned top. The President said the kids looked adorable and that his wife made "a very nice looking Catwoman.''
An odd cast of figures wondered around the North Lawn, including skeletons playing musical instruments, walking trees and "Star Wars'' characters. The President, meanwhile, kept to casual wear for the occasion.
