SOUTH CAROLINA -- Santa helped make a Christmas wish come true for a little boy in South Carolina. He sat on Santa's lap and asked for his daddy, an Army National Guard soldier who's been serving overseas. 

Before his busy night, Santa made time for some last-minute requests. By Christmas Eve, Santa had heard it all. That is, until two-year-old Hunter Morton sat on his lap.

Santa: "What do you want for Christmas?"

"A tractor-trailer. And a choo choo train, maybe," Morton said.

Santa: "What else do you want?"

"And Daddy," Morton said.

Morton's father was deployed over a year ago. He wasn't due back until January, but the magic of Christmas brought him home sooner than expected.

However, with military-like precision, a surprise for little Hunter was pulled off!
