There’s plenty of Christmas cheer in the Feek household.

Country singer Joey Feek, who is battling terminal cervical cancer in hospice care, celebrated the holiday with plenty of family by her side – including husband Joey and daughter Indiana – at their home in Alexandria, Indiana.

“Celebrating Christmas with Joey, surrounded by family,” Rory wrote in a post on the country duo’s Facebook page. “The best gift of all. Thank you Lord.” 

Rory had previously shared the couple’s wish that she’d be able to celebrate what very well could be her last Christmas with her family. And they’ve been celebrating the holiday all throughout the season to prepare. 

Last week, Joey and Indiana, 21 months, received an early visit from Santa Claus. 

The next major milestone they hope to hit? Indiana’s second birthday in February. 

Throughout her time in hospice, Joey has remained positive about the future. 

“I don’t fear anything because I’m so close to God and we’ve talked about it so many times,” she told The Tennessean in November. “I know he’s close. And I know he loves me. I’m really at peace. I still believe there’s healing in prayer.”
