The First Lady spent her big day setting an example for the rest of the country on how to lend a helping hand!

First Lady Michelle Obama could have been doing plenty of other things on her 47th birthday, but instead she decided to give back to her community. With President Barack Obama and their two daughters — Malia, 12 and Sasha, 9 — by her side, Michelle lent a hand on Jan. 17 (her birthday and Martin Luther King Day) at the Stuart Hobson Middle School in Washington D.C. helping out with the school’s painting project.

In the middle of the service project, President Obama and their daughters stopped to sing Michelle “Happy Birthday!’ Just look at her smile … we bet she wasn’t expecting that at all!
