President Barack Obama is getting "sports stuff" for Christmas.

But the president, an avid golfer and basketball player, will have to wait until Dec. 25 to find out exactly what it is.

First lady Michelle Obama gave away that hint Tuesday during a trip to the Children's National Medical Center. She visited privately with young patients in the heart and kidney unit, then came downstairs to the atrium to read "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" to dozens more.

Daughters Malia, 11, and Sasha, 8, helped their mother deliver that dose of holiday cheer, along with family dog Bo, who sported a red-and-white collar with sleigh bells. The sisters also took turns reading "Snowmen at Night," about what these frozen figures do after dark.
