Shouts of gratitude fill Houston home after young Harvey victim gets cereal for Christmas

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- This story has really touched the hearts of everyone at ABC13.

A Harvey victim's 5-year-old son was caught on camera showing incredible gratitude when he opened what he thought was cereal for his Christmas gift this year.

Isaiah lives in north Houston. His mom said after their house was destroyed by Hurricane Harvey, her children were told not to expect much this Christmas.

Yet when Isaiah tore open the Spider-Man wrapping paper of his present on Monday, he began shouting with glee after finding a box of Reese's Puffs cereal.

"Cereal? Are you serious?" Isaiah shouts. "This is what I wanted for Christmas! That's pretty!"

But what Isaiah didn't know was his mom had a Christmas trick up her sleeve.

Inside the cereal box was something that had Isaiah shouting even louder: a brand-new carrying case for his Cozmo robot.
