(CNN) — First Lady Michelle Obama, along with daughters Sasha and Malia and dogs Bo and Sunny, welcomed the official White House Christmas tree Friday.

The 18.5-foot-tall Douglas fir will go in the White House Blue Room. Chris Botek, the third-generation Christmas tree grower from Crystal Spring Tree Farm in Lehighton, Pennsylvania, and his family, were at the White House when the tree from his farm arrived. Last year’s tree was from a farm in North Carolina.

A White House tradition, the tree was delivered by carriage to the North Portico.

“We’re honored to have it. This is the best part of the holiday season is when our tree comes,” the First Lady said.
