Now, this is what Christmas is all about.

A family from suburban Boston got a holiday surprise when Kyle Schatzberger, a soldier with the National Guards, recently surprised his three kids -- aged 8, 5 and 2 -- when they visited Santa Claus at a local mall.

Schatzberger and his wife helped set up the surprise, although Schatzberger, who raced to the mall right after his plane touched down. reminded the children that Santa put it together, prompting one child to hug Saint Nick while another asked, "How did you do that?"

The whole family hadn't been together for three months. Something tells us they're going to have a pretty fantastic Christmas.

Go ahead and give this video a look. If you don't even tear up just a little, then you may not have a soul.
