Sisters ask Santa to bring Dad home from Afghanistan

Posted at 7:27 AM, Dec 10, 2012

Two young girls in Washington state received an early Christmas present.

They asked Santa to bring their dad home from Afghanistan - and of course - Santa delivered.

9-year-old Brooklyn and 8-year-old Rachael Christensen have not seen their father in nine months.

First Lieutenant Jeffrey Christensen flew in Saturday night and surprised the girls yesterday.

Because of overseas deployments - the Christensen family has been together just five of the last 26 months.
