The Meridian realtor and mom of three almost didn't film her kid's reaction to her surprising them with a new puppy, but her last minute decision to do it cashed out a big payout for the family. 

The Naylor Family of Meridian are getting a taste of stardom after appearing on one of the latest episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos.  According to the Idaho Statesman, Burma, the matriarch of the family wasn't originally going to make a video of her youngest kids receiving their new puppy.  At the last second, she changed her mind, pulled out her phone and videoed their reaction so she could experience that once in a lifetime moment long after the kids grow up.

Needless to say, the kids were thrilled with their new puppy, Luna.  So thrilled that they closed the door on mom's face!  Burma shared the video on Facebook and after the phenomenal reactions from friends and family she sent it into AFV's website.  Weeks later they were flown to Southern California to compete for the show's grand prize.

While they didn't take top honors, the video did snag 3rd place and the family cashed out with $2,000!
