This little girl is used to her daddy being gone for long periods of time. Since he's a U.S. Marine, she knows he's off fighting the bad guys to protect us.

When Maci's mommy told her she was to receive a special surprise from daddy, she was convinced it was a big batch of cookies. She was so shocked by what the gift really was that she fell over!

I'm not crying, you are! How can you not feel so happy for this little family?? Thank you to Maci's daddy and all the moms and dads out there who sacrifice time away from their families to serve and protect our country.

Isn't this surprise better than cookies? Lol! Enjoy your time with you dad, Maci!
