Anna and Josh Duggar would like to wish you and yours a very merry Christmas.
Yes, the couple knows, it's only early December.
But with six excited kids and a closet full of unattractive holiday garments, the polarizing tandem figured this week was as good a time as any to host an Ugly Christmas Sweater party.
Anna jas documented the event on Instagram, providing fans with brand new photos of her brand new daughter, while also drawing a bittersweet contract with last year's similarly-themed gathering.
Meaning what, exactly?

Then vs. Now
Anna Duggar shared these contrasting photos from 2018 and 2019, both of which were snapped at the family's annual Ugly Christmas Sweater party.
A Closer Look at 2018
As you can see here, a pretty special lady was included last year. May Mary Duggar, who passed away about halfway through 2019, rest in peace.
A Closer Look at 2019
Mary, sadly, isn't included in this new photo of course. But the newborn named in her honor, Maryella Hope, is warm and cozy in her mommy's arms.
Maryella at 5 Days Old
AWWW! We appreciate Anna giving us this major close-up of her sixth child -- at just five days old.
No Sweaters, All Smiles
We're not sure if these are really ugly Christmas sweaters. But they are cute kids! That counts for something.
So... Many... Babies
This is how the Duggars almost always roll, but it's even more pronounced these days. Look at all the very young babies featured in this family holiday photo.
A Family of 8
Josh and Anna are posing here with their six kids (and one dog!). They're in the Christmas spirit already, everyone.
Can We See More of Maryella?
LOL, of course! Here's another photo Anna has included on her social media account.
And Here's Another
What a classic snapshot, huh? The black and white make this the sort of photo the Duggars ought to frame and put on their wall.
A Beautiful Day to Be Born
Anna also posted this beautiful image, taken not long after Maryella officially entered the world as a human being.
What Did Anna Write as a Caption to These Christmas Pics?
"Everyone had a great time at our 2nd annual @duggarfam #UglySweaterParty!" she wrote at the outset of her lengthy caption.
A Time to Reflect
"We reflected on last year when Great-Grandma Mary Duggar was here with us and all the precious memories we made then. A great reminder that we don’t always know what a year may hold...so cherish every moment this CHRISTmas season," she added. (Note the emphasis there.)
"Little Maryella Hope made her debut (at 5 days old) for her first #familynight with the big family...and she seemed to enjoy it so much!!"
And She Concluded:
"Our kiddos had a blast getting dressed up and spending time together with everyone while enjoying good fellowship, food and fun! Thanks to @duggarfam @jessaseewald and @janamduggar for making this so much fun tonight!"
