Five-year old Nyla Nelson was beside herself.

A student at a local elementary school, she was in awe as Don Darling, pulled up with his sled full of childrens bicycles.

Right in front of her sat a brand new bicycle that she had been wanting for so long, made possible by a donation to her elementary school by local Philanthropist and businessman Don Darling, of Crystal Clear Painting and Decorating of Utah.

Yes, she's all girl. Just about as much as her brother, Kaleb Howard, 7, is all boy.

Kaleb also received one of the prestigious bikes, delivered to his school by an Army of Construction Workers.

"It is all about Giving" said Darling. "Especially in critical times like these, these kids deserve to have a great christmas" he said

It was the beginning of a great Christmas holiday for the Howard family, which will be growing by one any day now as mom is expecting another baby. But that means unpaid maternity leave, and not a lot of money for Christmas presents.

Daylina Lee, 5, wanted a princess bike. Keely White, a volunteer who works at Darling's Company, walked Daylina around to look for a bike. Daylina ended up with a purple bike with training wheels - perfect for any princess.

Daylina was shy, and not very talkative. So from just outside the school her aunt, Valerie James, expressed the family's gratitude for the party.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much," James said. "We couldn't make it through this Christmas without it."
