It was all smiles before the cameras as Vice President Biden welcomed Vice President -elect Mike Pence to his future home.

FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:

When Mike Pence is sworn in as the new Vice President in January he'll move into his new home at the Naval Observatory in Washington.

The current occupant of the Vice President's residence, Joe Biden, hosted his successor for lunch and also offered him some advice:

(Vice President Biden) "I plan on being available to Mike as senior staff for him as he moves. He'd be smart to reject of my ideas, but I think he'll listen to some of them."

Vice President-elect Pence is running the Trump transition.

President Obama has ordered his staff to make sure the transition to the Trump Administration as smooth as possible.
