The day of Christmas Eve was a mad scramble to pack for our trip to Germany and wrap up everything we needed to before being away for 2 weeks. Once we had everything finished, we took a family Christmas photo and opened pajamas.
I told the kids that they could wake up as early as they wanted on Christmas morning since it would only help alleviate our jet-lag once we arrived in Europe. So at 3-something a.m. they broke through the barrier and we opened presents.
Around mid-day our Lyft driver took us to the airport. There weren’t any lines so we had plenty of time for Christmas dinner at Love Shack Burgers— one of the only restaurants that was open— before boarding our plane!
