The Brown family is getting into the holiday spirit -- all 22 of them! As Christmas day approaches, “Sister Wives” stars Kody Brown and his four wives -- Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn -- show off how they’re preparing for the anticipated arrival of Kris Kringle by letting fans of the reality TLC series take a peek inside their decked-out homes.
Meri showcased her top-notch Christmas tree decorating skills on Twitter, giving her followers a glimpse of her favorite ornaments, which includes a “Polar Express”-inspired bell and a personalized family ornament featuring her, Kody and their only child Mariah.

But what makes this holiday even more special for the Brown family is that in just a few weeks, they’ll be welcoming another member into their big family when Robyn gives birth to a little girl in January. Robyn and Kody first announced they were expecting their second child together in June.
"We are so happy to announce an eagerly expected new member of the Brown family!" they told People magazine, revealing the due date for the baby would be Jan. 7, 2016.
“Is it a baby sister or a baby brother?” Robyn asked the family’s youngest members Solomon and Truely as they ripped opens presents that revealed if Kody’s 18th child would be a girl or a boy.
“It’s a girl,” Truely shouted as she excitedly pulled out a pink baby doll stuffed inside the present.
Speaking of presents, the birth of Robyn and Kody’s little girl will mean the patriarch of the polygamist family will have to save up to buy even more Christmas gifts for his children.
In a previous season, Kody acknowledged how that the holidays are pretty chaotic in the Brown household -- mostly because it means that the houses become flooded with gifts for all his kids. That’s why Kody limits gift giving to three presents per child, which he reminded fans, is 66 gifts. And with Robyn’s little one on the way, Kody can now start rounding up to 69!
