Better late than never. That’s the attitude the Kardashians took with their annual Christmas card. The reality-TV family finally released it Wednesday, the day before Christmas Eve.

The large family — all the Kardashians, Jenners and significant others--normally gathers together to create their yuletide greeting. But this year they took a different route: Only third-generation Kardashian members are featured in the card. And actually, none of them are Kardashians.

The 2015 Kardashian Christmas card features the children North West (2-year-old daughter of Kim and Kanye West), and Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick (kids of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick). The only third-generation child missing is Saint West, the newest member of the family. The family didn’t say why he wasn’t included in the card, but it’s probably because he hadn't been born yet when it was taken, or possibly because Kim and Kanye are waiting for a magazine cover and a multimillion-dollar payday for the baby's first public picture.

Either way, the 2015 Kardashian Christmas card is as cute as ever. North, Penelope, Mason and Reign are proving they will continue to keep the public fascinated, with their good looks and famous family ties. All of the Kardashian sisters shared the photo on Twitter Wednesday.

Not surprisingly, the chic children wore monochromatic ensembles, a family trademark -- all black, of course. The boys went barefoot, North rocked an adorable choker and Penelope showed off her curly blonde hair.

So why is it just the kids? Apparently things were too frenzied among the Kardashian-Jenner clan to get everyone together for a photo shoot. "This year, especially the last couple months, was so hectic that it was hard to arrange a full family shoot. Showing the kids alone seemed like the perfect thing to do,” an insider told E! Online Wednesday.

Last year, the family didn’t release a card at all. Kardashian "momager" Kris and Caitlyn Jenner were in the middle of their divorce, but Kim said the reality television family simply “ran out of time.”

What do you think of the 2015 Christmas card -- is it the best one yet, or lackluster without the adults?
