First Lady Michelle Obama unveiled the White House Christmas decorations on Wednesday amid chaos! Not really, but disaster almost ensued. Sunny, the Portuguese water dog the first family adopted in August, committed a major faux pas when he jumped on and knocked over a little girl. Luckily, our girl FLOTUS, wearing a beautiful Carolina Herrera ensemble, handled the whole situation like a BOSS. Take a look at the incident in the video above, and scroll down for photos of the moment below. *Please note the priceless reactions belonging to the White House chefs.*
