Here\'s what Obamas said in final Christmas message

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama delivered their final holiday greeting from the White House on Saturday in a video that was part nostalgia, a laundry list of accomplishments and a wish for a joyous holiday for U.S. families.

The nearly five-minute greeting began with a flashback to their first joint holiday address in 2009, which prompted laughs from the president. The pre-taped video continued a tradition of annual well wishes from Hawaii, where the Obamas are spending Christmas.

Under this year's White House theme, "The Gift of the Holidays," the Obamas also thanked U.S. troops for their service.

"The greatest gift that Michelle and I have received over the last eight years has been the honor of serving as your president and first lady," the president said. "Together, we fought our way back from the worst recession in 80 years, and got unemployment to a nine-year low. We secured health insurance for another 20 million Americans, and new protections for folks who already had insurance. We made America more respected around the world, took on the mantle of leadership in the fight to protect this planet for our kids, and much, much more.

"By so many measures, our country is stronger and more prosperous than it was when we first got here. And Im hopeful well build on the progress weve made in the years to come."
