Military Dad Surprises Children By Wrapping Himself as Christmas Present

Military homecoming surprises are some of the most heartwarming moments to exist and this Christmas surprise might take the cake. A navy dad gave his kids the Christmas surprise of a lifetime and his wife caught it on film.

The heartwarming moment happened days before Christmas. Scott Lee Stevens, a naval engineer, came home from a Mediterranean deployment early for the holidays, but his kids had no idea.
