First lady helps track Santa on Christmas Eve

(CNN) - First lady Michelle Obama got into the Christmas spirit Saturday by helping field phone calls from excited children eagerly tracking Santa and his sleigh full of toys across the world.

"I've spotted a little dot, flashing dot that is over - right now, Santa's sleigh is over the country of Latvia. And he's delivering toys there," Obama told three siblings.
