Embargoed till 4pm 12/12- The Duggar Family Christmas Card, Happy Birthday Jesus

The Duggar Family

The gang's all here!

The Duggar family gathered for their annual Christmas card shoot, and E! News got the exclusive on the final, glorious product.

The entire family is included—yup, that's right, all 19 kids—in the shoot as well as Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.

Jill Duggar's baby bump was on full display in a white maxi dress as she posed alongside her husband, Derek Dillard.

Nestled up in the left corner is none other than Jessa Duggar and her hubby, Ben Seewald, who couldn't help but pose for the picture cheek to cheek.

The most recent birthday girl, little Josie Duggar, got a very special spot in the cheerful pic: front and center and on her dad's lap!

The words, "Happy Birthday Jesus" and "Merry Christmas from the Duggar Family" are written on the card as well as the following special Bible passage:

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a child is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulders: and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6."

It's no secret that Christmas is a very special time in the Duggar household. Just last year, Michelle revealed her brood's annual tradition come December in a blog for TLC.

"I think we do it a bit different in our family," she wrote, adding that she and Jim Bob like to explain "to the children who Santa Claus was historically" while focusing "on his good deeds and ministering to children."

She continued, "It's a huge celebration…we make it a really big deal.  We decorate. It's a big birthday party for Jesus. We make banners and put them all around the house and put out our nativity scene."

In addition to decking out their house, the kids all gather to bake and decorate Christmas cookies shortly before their big celebration dinner.

Happy holidays!
