Thomas Rhett kept his family smiling and laughing through one of the holiday season's biggest tests.

The country singer, 33, and wife Lauren Akins laid down with daughters Lillie Carolina, 23 months, Lennon Love, 3½, Ada James, 6, and Willa Gray, 8, as they posed for family Christmas photos. As Thomas Rhett detailed, this was no easy feat.

"How do you get all your kids to smile for Christmas card pictures and pretend like they are laughing when they are all on the verge of crying? Sing peaches at the top of your lungs," he captioned the video.

The quiet, squirmy bunch starts laughing and singing along as their dad leads the Jack Black song, zooming in on different family members to continue and encourage the big smiles needed for the shoot.

October saw the couple take their brood to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Florida, dressing up as characters from Encanto and Tangled. Thomas Rhett was seen wearing a Flynn Ryder costume from Disney's animated film Tangled, matching his wife, who wore Rapunzel's dress.

In the photo, Akins held daughter Lillie, who was dressed as Rapunzel's pet chameleon Pasquale. In front of the mom of four, daughter Willa dressed as Mirabel from Encanto, standing next to sister Lennon, who wore a Luisa costume.

On Willa's other side, sister Ada wore an Isabela costume and smiled in front of a life-size Minnie Mouse.

Akins shared a sweet family photo the same month, celebrating the couple's wedding anniversary.

The mom of four smiled as she posed with all of her daughters and her husband on a beach, with all four girls wearing matching pink outfits.

"What 11 years with you looks like 🤍 happy anni cutie 🥰," she wrote in the caption.
