Kate Hudson, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift, & More Stars Share Thanksgiving Day Photos

Thanksgiving Day is over, and there are only a few activities we feel like doing the next day: eating leftovers, shopping Black Friday sales, and looking at what our favorite stars did for the holiday. Reese Witherspoon, Michelle Obama and more are sharing Thanksgiving Day photos and sharing what they’re thankful for — and we can’t get enough!

Celebs like Jamie Lee Curtis and the Kardashian-Jenner family spent the holiday helping families in need, while Oprah Winfrey and Chrissy Teigen cooked up a storm for their families at home. Couples Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez and Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus took to social to share their love, and the Obamas and Beckhams sent out sweet, holiday-card-style photos of their families for us to swoon over.

Scroll on for a look through how all your favorite stars rang in the holiday — from Jennifer Aniston’s enchiladas to Sarah Jessica Parker’s favorite dishes.

This throwback photo of the family is making us seriously nostalgic: “Wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving,” supermodel Cindy Crawford writes.

Katherine Schwarzenegger & Chris Pratt

View this post on Instagram

Coming up on Thanksgiving week and feeling so thankful and excited to be with my family and loved ones. I know this week comes with a lot of mixed feelings for people about returning home, traveling and missing loved ones. Everyone needs a little extra love as they navigate their way through this time. This holiday is my second favorite holiday (Christmas has my # 1 spot) and I love the message around this holiday of being thankful, but also gathering together with your friends, family and those who don’t have a place to go. My mom has always done a great job opening her home and dinner table to everyone. So maybe this week start thinking each day for something or someone you’re thankful for, and tell them. Today, I am grateful for this bike ride with my wonderful husband and seeing the colors of the fall leaves. While we were riding our bikes, he said let’s give out real honest compliments to people we pass and see what happens. We did, and not only did random compliments surprise people on the bike path, they also made us feel good. This also reminded me how thankful I am to be married to someone who thinks of kind ways to make the world a better place. Happy Saturday ♥️ 🍁🦃
