This ain't no Kardashian Christmas card.

Duck Dynasty's Korie and Willie Robertson are sharing personal holiday photos that show a happy, grounded – and in one case beard-free! – family embracing holiday traditions like meetings with Santa Claus and hitting the slopes.

But Christmas is about more than just shopping and skiing for this family: as devout Christians, they've told PEOPLE that they've "always been blessed with the season." In fact, they adopted son Will around the holidays 11 years ago, and one month after that, found out they were expecting daughter Bella.

So in the spirit of the season, take a look back at some of the Robertsons' favorite holiday snapshots, and visit duckthehalls.com for more festive moments from the whole Duck Dynasty clan.

1999. "I love to ski," Korie says of this shot, taken with then-little John Luke and Sadie in Colorado.

1999. It's not easy being green! Willie paints his face and dons a cap to play the Grinch while performing "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" with Saide and John Luke. "We called Sadie 'Sadie Loo Who,' " Korie recalls.

1999. Ho ho ... no? At a church Christmas party, Willie played Santa Claus. "I was the children's minister at the time so I volunteered [him]," Korie says. "I think Sadie recognized his voice!"

2000. The family of four gets together for a picture-perfect Christmas card. "Willie has his starter beard," Korie points out. "You can still see his cute dimples."

2008. Eight years later, the family has grown to include son Will, daughter Bella and Taiwanese exchange student Rebecca. "Maybe this is why the kids sang the song 'Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy' on our Christmas album," Korie says. "I didn't realize until I looked back at all these pictures how often I make Willie put on a Santa suit. After Duck Dynasty maybe he can get a job in the mall at Christmastime."
