PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Some kids who call NORAD on Christmas Eve to find out where Santa is hang up as soon as a volunteer answers the phone -- probably because they expected a recording and not a real person, veteran Santa trackers say.

There were some especially awed kids Friday, when one of the people answering the phone was first lady Michelle Obama.

A telephone link from Hawaii, where the Obamas are on vacation, allowed her to pitch in with volunteers at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., who were answering phone calls and e-mails for the North American Aerospace Defense Command's Santa-tracking program.
