Two Hackett Middle School students got a very special surprise to jump start the weekend. 

Sisters Erica and Jessica Gonzalez came home to their sixth graders after a deployment in Kuwait with the National Guard. The children knew their mothers were stateside but had no idea they were coming home Friday. 

They kept in touch via FaceTime and phone calls, but nothing compares to seeing each other in person.

"I'm overwhelmed with a lot of joy. When I left he was not this big. I cant believe I came home to such a big kid. He's all I got, my everyday motivation," said Gonzalez. 

The foursome looks forward to spending quality time with one another and celebrating one of the kid's birthdays next month.
