Duggar Family Christmas Card Spotlights Jesus’ Birthday, Growing Brood: See the Picture!

Duggar family Christmas card
The Duggar family, of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, have released their 2014 Christmas card  

They're gonna need a bigger card next year! 19 Kids and Counting's Duggar family gathered their ever-growing brood together to pose for a Christmas — or, as they put it, CHRISTmas — picture to send out to loved ones for the holidays. 

Set against a snow-fleeced winter wonderland, the photo shows parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar with their 19 children, three children-in-law, three (soon-to-be four!) grandchildren, and Jim Bob's mom, Mary.

The kids are, from oldest to youngest: Josh (who has three kids with wife Anna), Jana, John David, Jill (who's pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Derick Dillard), Jessa (and her husband, Ben Seewald), Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James Andrew, Justin, Jackson, Johannah Faith, Jennifer Danielle, Jordyn-Grace Makiya, and Josie Brooklyn.

Printed above the picture are the words "Happy Birthday Jesus!" in white script. The card also features the greeting "Merry CHRISTmas From the Duggar Family," as well as a quote from scripture: "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." 

Last year, Michelle explained on her TLC blog that she and Jim Bob try very hard to keep their kids focused "on the real meaning of Christmas," and not on Santa or presents or any of the other more commercial aspects of the holiday.

"It was Christ's day, the holy day of mass, Christ mass, and what we're celebrating is the day that Christ was born," she wrote. "We explained that to them from the beginning and how it is a huge celebration. We really make it a big deal…It's an exciting time. We decorate. It's a big birthday party for Jesus."
