The White House was home to Malia and Sasha Obama for eight years. As they prepared to say goodbye last January, their mom Michelle Obama revealed the girls hosted a sleepover with eight girlfriends on their final night at the Pennsylvania Avenue address.

The former First Lady told an audience during a Q & A at the American Institute of Architecture conference her daughters, ages 18 and 15 respectively, asked for pizza and nuggets for the sleepover. They wanted to do something typically teen "because my girls are so normal," their mom said, as per People.

Obama also revealed her girls were in tears as they said goodbye to the White House staff on their last day. As Malia and Sasha went out the back door, the former First Lady and her husband, former President Barack Obama, welcomed President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at the front door.

Obama said she held back the tears about their departure. When her husband, however, gave his final address during a convention in Chicago in early January, the Obama women couldn't help but tear up.

"[Malia] looked over at me and she says, 'I can't believe I'm going to cry through the whole speech,'" Obama said, as per Us Weekly. "And I said, 'It's OK.'" Watch that moment in a video below.

Meanwhile, three months since leaving the White House, the Obamas settled down as ordinary citizens in a Washington, D.C. mansion around Kalorama. The former First Lady revealed she now opens the front door of their home, which sometimes surprised her friends.

Obama also said that while they have plenty of memories to cherish from their White House stint, there are no plans for a return for now. "I wouldn't ask my children to do this again," the mom revealed to address rumors she could be running for office in succeeding elections.
