Dothan, AL (WTVY) There was another surprise homecoming at a Wiregrass school this morning.

Major Scott Graves has been deployed since October and he hasn't seen his five-year-old daughter, Elaina in nearly five months.

So he decided to surprise her at the Bethlehem Child Development Center.

During her Pre-K class lunch, Graves snuck up behind his un-suspecting daughter and gave her the surprise of her life.

Elaina said she felt like she wanted to "burst like balloon."

The Graves family says they are going to "make up" for lost times with a trip to Disneyland.
