The Dubrows aren't the only ones in the OC getting into the holiday spirit these days. Tamra Judge just held a festive photo shoot with her family, and their photos are guaranteed to warm your heart. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

Tamra gathered the whole fam together for the photos, including husband, Eddie Judge, children Sophia Barney, Spencer Barney, and Ryan Vieth, daughter-in-law, Sarah Rodriguez, and granddaughter, Ava. Even though Tamra had a "stressful" experience during this photo shoot due to things like Eddie having the flu (according to a behind-the-scenes look that Tamra posted on Instagram), you wouldn't know it from how beautiful the pics turned out.

Though Tamra said these family portraits made her "happy," she still felt the absence of her eldest daughter, Sidney, who has chosen to live with her ex-husband, Simon Barney, full-time. "Maybe next year," Tamra captioned one of the photos, along with, "#justdidntfeelcomplete."

Makes me happy 🌲 but Missing my Sidney 💔 maybe next year 🙏🏼. #justdidntfeelcomplete

Tamra previously shared with The Daily Dish that she continues to communicate with Sidney via text about once a week. She also said she is staying optimistic that one day her whole family will be back together again (Tamra's son Spencer chose to live with her full-time). "I am very hopeful that my situation with Sidney and Spencer will be fixed," she said. "So it's been very, very difficult. And I pray every single night. Just God, please, just watch over this family. Help them, get us all back together. I think that it's gonna happen. I think that everything happens for a reason. Everything does. So if it's a learning lesson on my side or on his side or the kids' side, everybody's gonna come out [a] better person."
