merry christmas eve.

After finding out about our little bean growing inside of me, we called Max's mum and Matt and invited them over to our house for Christmas this year. I knew Nana Val would be dying to met her newest grandson and thought a family Christmas would be the perfect time for them to met.

And two days after our last house guests left, Nana Val and Poppy Matt arrived for Christmas (our guest room has a revolving door these days, hehe).

I can't really speak for Nana and Poppy, but I am pretty sure they thought Lachlan was the most adorable baby around. You know, as most grandparents do!

Since Byron was leaving for holidays with his Mum's family on Christmas Eve, Santa decided to visit our house a day early so he could open his presents with us too.

Turns out Byron was on Santa's "nice" list this year... which was no surprise to us.

And while we watched big brother open all of his gifts...

Little brother had a little nap on Daddy. Apparently watching Byron open gifts isn't that exciting when you are 7 weeks old.

Byron was so excited about the 108 newborn nappies he opened until he realised the box was actually full of new motorbike gear. Phew!

I was so looking forward to our first family Christmas and was really glad Byron was able to spend the day with us. Sure it wasn't actually Christmas, but we were all together in one room on Christmas Eve, which is pretty darn close.

Merry Christmas Eve, from our little family to yours!!

More on our Christmas Day festivities to come... but until then I would love to know how you split your holidays. Do you or did you grow up as a part of a split family? Do you celebrate holidays with multiple families on different days or alternate each year? How do you make it work and what tips do you have?? I would love to know :)
