In two other shots, Jana posed with her younger brothers as the foursome indulged in pickles and doughnuts.

They also went on an old-fashioned train ride, attended a play, and stopped to take many pics along the way.

The group stayed into the nighttime to admire the town all lit up with holiday decor as well as a light show illuminating off a giant Christmas tree.

She added the caption: 🎄Christmastime is here! ✨

JOSH'S SENTENCING

The family's patriarch and matriarch, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, however, have kept quiet on the Duggar's official Instagram account, about their holiday plans amid their son Josh's pornography scandal.

Josh was sentenced to prison on December 9 following a nearly two-week-long trial.

Many of his siblings were in attendance at the trial to offer their support.

Josh was arrested and charged with possessing and receiving child pornography in April 2021. 

Upon his guilty verdict, he was immediately taken into custody at Washington County Jail, where he was placed in solitary confinement away from other prisoners for his safety until his sentencing next year.

Amid Josh's sentencing, he was transferred to federal prison for the crime and faces 20 years for each count. 

JANA'S LEGAL TROUBLES

Just days after her brother's fate was decided, news broke that Jana had a court battle of her own after she was charged back in September of 2021 with endangering the welfare of a child.

The TV personality posted bail at $430 at the time.

A clerk confirmed to The Sun that Jana's next court date will be on January 10, 2022, at 1.30pm.

Jana explained what happened in an Instagram post calling the incident a "scary accident."
