Playing President Obama's White House Staff Has Been Pranking Him With a Freaky Snowman Family and It's Incredible

President Obama has a snowman problem.

The commander-in-chief's White House staff have been playing a delightful prank on him during his final winter in office with the help of a snowman family parked on the White House lawn.

Waiting for some snow.

"Sometimes you gotta have fun. For the past three weeks, there have been four snowmen on display in the Rose Garden," White House photographer Pete Souza explained on Instagram. "We've been joking that we should move the snowmen a few feet closer to the Oval Office every day to see if anyone noticed."

"Then we realized the snowmen were too heavy to easily lift," he continued. "But finally this morning before the President came to the office, some helpful staff -- I won't say who--moved all the snowmen so each one was peeking through a different window into the Oval. This photo was taken this afternoon as the President signed end-of-the-year bills."

Thankfully, according to Souza, the president was amused with the joke.

Another snowman from yesterday. Yes he enjoyed the prank. See previous post for the backstory.
