Scary and sweet! Neil Patrick Harris received an unusual Christmas gift featuring his kids and showed it off in an Instagram video on Friday, December 25.

“Two of my top three gifts today,” the Emmy winner, 42, captioned the video in which he holds framed photos of his 5-year-old twins — Gideon and Harper — as they transform into scary portraits. “My children + Haunted Mansion = squee!”

The former Best Time Ever host also shared a snap featuring husband David Burtka holding his Christmas gift — a giant cuckoo clock.
