Guests departing the White House after the party described an evening of snacks and dancing as well as an emotional speech by the president. Singer James Taylor said it was "a wonderful speech, moving, inspiring. He raised the bar for all of us. I don't know how we'll live up to it."

The first lady's actual birthday was Friday (January 17). Earlier this month, the president gave his wife the birthday present that many parents can only dream of -- time off, alone, without the children in Hawaii. She remained in Hawaii alone following the family's Christmas vacation to relax and spend time with friends ahead of her birthday.
