AUGUSTA, Ga. - A visit to see Santa at the mall in Augusta turned out to be much more than just giving him a list to take to the North Pole.
Four-year-old Christine Myers asked Santa for her father to be home for Christmas.
What she did not know, was that he had come home from a tour duty in Afghanistan a couple months early.
Her father showed up while she was sitting on Santa's lap. She seemed very happy to see him.
Myers' father was not supposed to return home until March. They sent him home due to surplus personnel.
