When my younger son decided to return home after ten years in Germany he hoped to make it by Christmas but couldn't get here until January 16th, so we planned to have Christmas then. My older son was coming on December 24th but was delayed. He arrived by suppertime and we brought in his things. Opening the front door to a knock I found #2 son! The delay had been a trip to the airport. I had no clue they had planned this and it was the best surprise ever!
