Every year, hundreds of local children celebrate Halloween at the White House's Halloween party but, this year, one toddler made a special impression on President Obama.
One toddler dressed as Pope Francis, complete with a pope mobile and security detail, stole the show on the South Lawn. While the president and first lady Michelle Obama were handing out candy to young party-goers, the president was impressed with the costume.
"Top prize!" the president proclaimed to the press, giving a thumbs up.
The White House shared a video of the adorable meeting on Twitter.
