Think that celebrities go over the top when celebrating the holidays? Think again! Per their Pinterest boards, celebs are just like us... pinning and dreaming of a memorable Thanksgiving and white Christmas.

As a mom of four, Heidi Klum has a lot to be thankful for. And per her Thanksgiving Pinterest board, not only does she like to make her Thanksgiving a delightful and delicious one, she enjoys making it fun for the kids, too. Heidi surely wants her Thanksgiving to be a memorable one, based on her pins of kids' crafts and super-cute treats.

Heidi's Christmas pin board is similar to her Thanksgiving board — she has a lot of kid-friendly activities pinned. However, it's pretty apparent that Ms. Klum enjoys creating a beautifully decorated home that is perfect for entertaining. From DIY decorations to tips on serving alcoholic drinks at a party, Heidi's Christmas board has it all, just like the model and designer who owns it.

Head on over to Ellen Degeneres' hilarious Pinterest boards if you are looking to have a good laugh this holiday season. By filling them with comical Santa snapshots and clever ways to give during the holidays (something that she is famous for), Ellen shows on her boards that likes to be generous and fun during Christmas. And don't forget to check out her home board, where the comedian pins a few traditional ornament ideas, centerpieces and DIY crafts.

Let's be honest, we've been crushing on Tiffani Thiessen since her Saved by the Bell days. So when we saw that her Pinterest page had not only one but four holiday boards, we were psyched. With boards that include pins on wrapping, decorating, gift ideas and a Dear Santa wish list (to her hubby, of course), it would seem that Tiffani likes to be prepared and organized during the holiday season. By pinning DIY items, simple and easy decoration tips, children's crafts and delicious treats, Tiffani reveals that she is one average mama looking to make her Christmas a fun and memorable one (and the only celeb pinner without any pictures of herself pinned for all to see).

With a holiday board filled with every season of the year, the Mowry twins seem to share the love for a simple holiday season. Like the other celebrity pinners featured, the girls pin things that we could have and create in our very own home, from outdoor decor to making your very own cider to centerpiece ideas. The lovely identical twins, a couple of regular wives and mothers with a glamorous lifestyle, have even reminded themselves of their blessings on Thanksgiving. Their Tis the Season board is filled with the same holiday dreams and wishes that we all have.

Perhaps the least glamorous of the bunch, Vanessa Lachey pins what we all want every holiday season: to eat! Pinning the likes of candy cane cookies and gingerbread houses made to fit the rim of a cocoa mug, Nick's wife knows that pretty treats and eats are the most fun part of the holidays. With a few decor items in there, too, this mama seems to enjoy the comforts that the most wonderful time of the year gives to us.
