Merry Christmas from the Giudices!

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice has tweeted photos of her family's 2013 Christmas card to put fans and supporters in the holiday spirit. The modest looking card shows Joe, Teresa and their four daughters standing in the middle of a field of red poinsettias, which contrast with their white, black, and gold clothing

Joe and Teresa Giudice are spending as much time with family as they can before things get serious in the new year. After being indicted by the federal government in 2013, the couple is slated to stand trial for their numerous charges in 2014. The couple has been slapped with over 40 counts of tax fraud and evasion; if convicted on all counts, the couple could spend 50 years in prison, and Joe could face deportation back to Italy.

Radar Online reports that the Giudices will appear on 2014's Season 6 of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," but that their trial will not be featured on the show. The network altered its production schedule for the show by pushing filming from its regular fall start date to early December of 2013, in hopes of getting the family's legal strife on tape. According to Radar Online, however, the Giudice's trail has been moved from February to April, and Bravo will not be able to catch the drama on camera.

Joe Giudice will also face a January court date after being caught driving with a false license that he obtained using his brother's identifying information. Joe has had his driver's license suspended 47 times over the past 26 years.
