We finish up our Magic Moments series - sponsored by Union Bank and Channel 8 - by meeting the Munsell Family.

One by one, the Munsell girls tore into their Christmas gifts Tuesday. The were surprised with new toys, clothes and shoes - the gifts leaving some speechless and others overwhelmed with excitement. 

Taylor, Addee, Ellie and Mckenna moved into their aunt's house in Lincoln this summer. Mom, Amber suddenly became ill while visiting from Utah. She was in the hospital for 10 days with pneumonia and when she got out, her husband of 10 years left her.

"It's been the hardest year we've all had to go through," Munsell said.

Munsell hasn't had much luck finding work and couldn't afford to give her girls a Christmas. But on Tuesday, her luck changed.

"I feel so blessed to have the people I have in my life. And to have people who don't even know me or my girls, to give them such a special, special Christmas that they'll never forget," Munsell said.

Kari Brennan nominated her sister, Amber for this Magic Moments.

"It's amazing. I'm just so excited that the community can help her and help my nieces have a great Christmas," Brennan said.

After sifting through the gift cars for massages, mini golfing and Valentino's, the Munsell's say this is truly one of the best Christmases.
