Kardashian Christmas Card: Unveiled! Controversial!

The Kardashians have once again made a statement with their annual Christmas card.

Yet the final product has mostly left fans scratching their heads and asking a question.

First, take a look at the 2017 card above.

Taken by photographer Eli Russell Linnetz, it was shared yesterday on Twitter by Kim Kardashian – and it features nearly every one of her relatives.

There’s Khloe and Kourtney, of course, along with mother and matriarch Kris Jenner.

There’s also Jenner’s own mom, Mary Jo Houghton, not to mention half-sibling Kendall Jenner.

And look at that! Kourtney’s kids – Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick – are making an appearance, joined by fellow young cuties Saint and North West.

The official version is the culmination of what Kim and company dubbed their very own 25 Days of Christmas, as they released various pictures and outtakes from the photo shoot throughout the month on social media.

To wit:

As you can see, Kanye West was very much involved in the pictorial… and yet was NOT depicted in the card itself.

We don’t know why.

Scott Disick isn’t included, either, but he isn’t technically family; and Rob Kardashian is nowhere to be found.

Come on, though, did anyone really expect the often-estranged Rob to front, center or even off to the side in the card?

What many folks DID expect, however, was to finally get a look at Kylie Jenner’s baby bump.

The pregnant 20-year old was not featured in any of the lead-up photos prior to this final release, prompting social media users to assume she would make her pregnancy reveal as part of the card.

That would have been a fun and unique way to do so, right?

For the entire family to be gathered around Kylie, pointing to her belly or something, as a way to confirm Kylie’s pregnancy?

Alas, this did not happen.

Kylie isn’t even in the card!

The only conclusion we can really draw from this is that Jenner really is ashamed of her body, as previous reports have stated.

We guess Kylie really is in hiding until her child is born – and fans aren’t happy about it.

“Maybe we should call the authorities because @KylieJenner is still missing from the damn Kardashian Christmas card,” one person Tweeted.

Added another: “I need to see the BELLY.”

And another: “Lmaoooooo THEY MIND F—KED US ALL MONTH LONG!!!!”

“What is this total f—kery they have done to us!!! C’mon @KylieJenner @KimKardashian we wanted Kylie on the damn 25th day!!!”

It’s worth noting that Kylie did spend Christmas morning with Khloe.

The latter (who is also pregnant!) shared the above Snapchat image with supporters on Monday, stating in a video that Kylie attended her mother’s Christmas Eve party and has very much been around this holiday season.

She’s just laying low, it seems.

And when she does show her face, she is NOT showing her stomach. It’s impossible not to notice that these days.

This is all well and good, of course. It’s Kylie’s body and her pregnancy and her news to deliver whenever she wants to.

She just has to understand that the longer she goes without doing so, the most people on the Internet will ask question and maybe even hurl insults.

We don’t encourage the latter act, but we do understand the former.

Kylie has spent her formative years sharing every last aspect of her personal life with followers… and now she chooses to be all private?!?

It’s hard not to conclude that she really isn’t very excited to be a mother, based on that simple fact.


Prince William and Kate Middleton Release World’s Most Perfect Christmas Card

It’s the most wonderful time of the year?

Maybe, to some.

But we’d like to make an addendum to this saying:

It’s the most ROYALLY wonderful time of the year!

This is now officially the case because Prince William and Kate Middleton have released their 2017 Christmas card and it featured their two children and it’s just so unbelievable cute and perfect that we want to squeal out loud.

In fact, we can’t help it. We’re going to do so:


Getty photographer Chris Jackson snapped the lovely portrait earlier this year and then posted it on Twitter on Monday, writing the following as he did so:

“Delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to use this family portrait I shot as their Christmas Card this year.

“Merry Christmas!”

The stunning snapshot depicts Prince George, Princess Charlotte and their parents wearing matching blue outfits.

Check it out here:

It should be noted that Jackson also took Prince George’s fourth birthday photograph this summer.

The Christmas card photograph was probably taken on the same day as Prince George’s birthday picture, considering he’s wearing the same outfit.

See it HERE.

For last year’s Christmas card, the beloved quartet used a candid shot Jackson took during the royal tour of Canada.

It marked the full immediate family’s first overseas trip together.

And, not that it even needs to be said, but the final product was downright precious:

2016 card

About a year from now, of course, the 2018 version of this card will look very different… because Middleton is pregnant!

Heck, Middleton may even be pregnant with twins.

Whether it’s one additional child or two, however, expect another cute face to be added to this portrait in just a few months.

(Middleton is reportedly due in April; just a short while before Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle. It’s all VERY exciting!)

In addition to sharing their 2017 Christmas card, meanwhile, their Royal Highnesses also shared some exciting news today:

Charlotte will attend the Willcocks Nursery School in London!!!!!!

“We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte,” a spokesperson for the school said, adding:

“We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January.”

George, in case you were somehow not aware, is currently enrolled at Thomas’s Battersea in London.


Jeremy Roloff and Audrey Roloff: See Their Christmas Card!

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff just gave us another reason to be grateful for this holiday season.

The beloved Little People, Big World stars have been filling their Instagram accounts with cute family photos over the past few weeks, most them Christmas-themed.

For instance…

Cute, right?

Prepare yourselves, however.

Because it’s about to get A LOT cuter.

On Wednesday night, Audrey jumped on her favorite social media account once again, this time to take followers behind the scenes of her family Christmas card shoot.

Along with the following photo, Audrey wrote as a caption:

“This week we started moving everything from our garage back into our house just in time to enjoy some snuggling under our tree and snap a Christmas card photo of the three of us and pine the kitty in our new home.”

She added:

“I love Christmas cards Every December our fridge is full of them, photos of the families I love so much, reminding me to lift each of them up in prayer.

“Wanna swap cards with us?! See how over on @beating50 Can’t wait to share rest of the these photos with y’all.”

Audrey and Jeremy recently took their daughter Christmas tree shopping, while Audrey shared an update on their precious three-month bundle of joy.

Yes, Ember Jean is now three months old. How crazy is that?!?

It seems like just yesterday she was born.

Finally, Audrey treated her fans this week to something unique, funny and special.

The TLC personality shared an image of her and Jeremy acting all goofy; which, by her own account, doesn’t happen very often.

“I wouldn’t consider Jeremy and I to be silly,” Audrey wrote, adding in detail:

“We’re far more inclined to spend the evening in a serious debate, working on new ideas for our ministries, or casting vision for our future.

“Sometimes I think we need to schedule “play dates” instead of “date nights.”

Why is this? Explains Audrey:

“Our date nights often become work brainstorming sessions. If any of you married couples out there run businesses or ministries together, I’m sure you can relate.

“We try to set boundaries on date night – no bringing up big looming decisions, finances, work, you know… the stuff grows the gray hairs. But we fail.”

Always open and candid about her relationship, Audrey continued in her caption:

Sometimes I think we need to just lighten up.

Read a novel instead of the news and self-help… Watch a comedy instead of apologetics, mysteries, and documentaries….

Give each other our undivided attention, instead of constantly multitasking… Maybe we just need to stop idolizing productivity and give ourselves permission to play. Maybe you need permission to play too? Who cares if it’s cheesy!

Dress up in matching PJ’s, have a tickle fight, or suspend yourself in the air balancing on your husbands feet;) Let’s not undermine the value of playfulness.

Also an especially profound individual, Audrey recently wondered about the meaning of love.

In this case, she concluded:

And yes, my postpartum abs thanked me for this picture;)
