We picked up the students on Saturday. They actually arrived in Canada on Friday, but with it being the holiday season and so many delayed flights, they were stuck at the airport for almost a day. Those poor kids! They are both sleeping still. They've had a busy night with last night being Christmas Eve. We went to my parents' house for Christmas supper. We all ate wayyyyyy too much - the food was so good, it was hard not to!! Then we went to my mother-in-law's to open presents and then back to my parents' to open presents there.

Oh! My dad is such a character! He pulled a fast one on the boys! After they opened all of their presents, there were candies under the tree for them. Patrick grabbed one and was opening the candy. We were all focused on Patrick that we didn't notice that Paul had taken a candy and popped it into his mouth! I was just about to say, "Don't eat the candy!" when we looked at Paul and he had it in his mouth already. Bahahahhahahahahaha!!! It was a lump of coal!! OMG! We didn't think any of them were actually going to put it in their mouth! My dad was playing a practical joke on the kids. Anyway, Paul ran to the bathroom and spat it out and washed his mouth out. He's fine. He was laughing. EVERYONE was laughing. I think I laughed so hard, I almost split my pants! John then told the boys that traditionally Santa gives kids a lump of coal if they have misbehaved. OMG. I asked Paul why he ate the coal. Like, wouldn't you look at it and say, "Ewww!" and throw it away? He said he thought it was a new kind of candy.

Ahhh...this was the funniest Christmas ever. I have a feeling the next few months with these students are going to be fun.
