"It was a really good Christmas this year for all the kids," said mother Tiffanie Anders.
The living room is packed with gifts for all three of Tiffanie's daughters.
The family had so many gifts they opened some early to clear out space.
It's a different world than Tiffanie and her husband Joshua thought they'd be facing when their old home caught fire December the 12th.
"This is miles and miles beyond what I ever expected to be where I'm at now," said Joshua.
The Christmas gifts started arriving almost immediately after the fire and that wasn't all.
People they didn't even know donated food, money, appliances and even a storage shed.
"Just anything you can imagine that you'd need for a house people have just brought to us," said Tiffanie.
The biggest gift came the day after the fire.
That's when a Nashville man donated his Gallatin home to the family to live in for free until they found their own home.
"With the help of our community we've been lifted back up to where our family can function like a family," said Joshua.

Pipeline work can continue at state natural area
May 24, 2013 11:16 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee environmental officials have given Piedmont Natural Gas permission to resume drilling on a Nashville pipeline project.
Work was halted on May 11 when a mixture of bentonite clay and water spilled from a drill into Otter Creek at the Radnor Lake State Natural Area.
The mud was later scraped out of the creek using buckets and hand tools.
Meredith Benton, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/199LA54 ) that Piedmont agreed to 11 new terms and conditions to prevent a recurrence of the spill.
Those include creating a pit to capture any spilled slurry and daily water quality monitoring.
Benton said the department has not decided whether to issue fines or citations.
