Here's an amazing story about what happens when a holiday wish turns into a happy homecoming.

It starts with two children - 3-year-old Lucy and 7-year-old Gracie - on a trip to visit Santa at Macy's in Seattle.

Their dad, Scott Grettum, was deployed last March on the U.S.S. Nimitz.

The sisters told their mom for their Christmas wish they just wanted their dad back home. Little did they know that Dad was a lot closer than they could have imagined!

Dad told Gracie she won't have to go to school tomorrow. She gets to hang out with him instead.
