If you spent time with your in-laws over the Christmas holiday, you were in good company. 19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, spent Christmas Eve with his family members.

Duggar (who took her husband's last name Dillard) captioned an Instagram photo of the Dillard family gathered in a semi-circle in front of a Christmas tree, "Great time with the Dillard relatives on Christmas Eve! #dillardfam #christmaseve #familytime."

The expecting couple then spent Christmas Day with Duggar's family, where the focus of the day was placed on God and religion — and a video shared with fans, of course.

"The true meaning and true spirit of Christmas really is right here," explains Josh Duggar as he points to a nativity set inside the home and captured on the video.

Duggar and Dillard tied the knot in June, and marked a recent anniversary with several super-sweet Instagram photos from their wedding. On one particularly adorable snapshot of the couple kissing, the 19 Kids and Counting star wrote, "6 months ago today I married my #bestfriend @derickdillard. The last 6 months have flown by! Every day just gets better and better! I can't believe how blessed I am to be married to the most wonderful man ever."

It's gonna be a Christmas feast with the @duggarfam!

Her sister, Jessa Duggar, who also recently wed, gave fans a peek inside the Duggar family Christmas feast, seen above. The younger sibling married Ben Seewald Nov. 1 in front of nearly 1,000 guests. They escaped for a mini-moon shortly after at Akansas Hot Springs — which given the dipping temperatures sounds just heavenly right now!
