We already know the holiday decor at the White House is especially festive this year, and now one of America's favorite pop stars can vouch for that herself.

Kelly Clarkson, who performed at the official National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on Thursday — the last ever with President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama — took time out for a mommy-daughter smooch with her firstborn, River Rose, 2, in front of a tree inside the White House.

The pop star tweeted an adorable photo capturing the moment.

"So this happened yesterday at the White House with my little girl #RiverRose," Clarkson wrote beneath the pic. "I can't handle it. It was her idea. She's getting a pony." Aww!

Clarkson, who's also mom to son Remington, 7 months, and stepchildren Savannah, 15, and Seth, 10, (with hubby Brandon Blackstock), kicked off her performance at the tree lighting celebration by dedicating the song "Please Come Home For Christmas" to U.S. soldiers.

The 34-year-old singer was later joined onstage by a handful of music superstars including Marc Anthony, gospel singer Yolanda Adams, country giants Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood and legendary Grammy winner James Taylor.

A broadcast of the event, which was hosted by former "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria, will air on the Hallmark Channel on Dec. 5.
