Every Christmas, what most of us (especially children) look forward to is opening presents. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise: we want to know what kinds of toys and trinkets Santa Claus brought us, and if he got us anything from our lists!

Of course, if you are a parent, you understand the struggle of getting things for your kids, taking careful consideration of their likes and dislikes. You may not be able to get them everything they want, but just seeing smiles on their faces come Christmas morning is enough.

In 2015, two parents managed to wrangle tears from their daughter before they could see her smile!

The duo carefully planned their Christmas surprise for weeks. Keeping it a secret was no easy feat.

After all, they got her an adorable puppy!

The little girl clutches her teddy bear and closes her eyes as she waits for the surprise. When her mom pulls the teddy bear away from her to replace it with the equally cuddly puppy, she bursts into tears, overwhelmed with joy!

That’s certainly a Christmas this daughter is sure to never forget. We wonder what her parents have in store for her this year.
