ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 Habitat for Humanity broke ground on a home Tuesday that will turn out to be quite a surprise for three Albany kids.

In about four months, a foundation on Willow Oak Court will become a home for Laura Alexander. She works at Phoebe Putney Hospital, and applied to Habitat so her kids could have a place to call home.

She's keeping the home so it will be a Christmas surprise.

"It's a surprise I want to surprise my family. They have no idea they have no idea at all. Is this ours? They've always wanted a trampoline and a basketball goal, so that's probably the first thing they will ask for."

Alexander will have to put 300 hours of sweat equity into the home, but she'll get help from volunteers from throughout the community.

This is the eighth Habitat home constructed or remodeled in Albany over the past couple of years.
