A father who has spent the past year overseas surprised his kids at their Forney elementary school Monday.
Staff Sgt. Robert Nichols showed up in Preston and Taylor's class wearing the school's bulldog mascot costume.
They were a little unsure at first, but when he took off the costume the 5-year-old twins gave dad a big hug.
"There's a lot… a lot of emotions. I think if I talk, I may cry. I'm glad to be home. I missed them," he said.
Staff Sgt. Nichols has been deployed in Europe with the United States Marine Corp since last October.
