Looking back at old pictures like this one… always shifts me into a warm and fuzzy #Thanksgiving mode. My most memorable Thanksgiving was when I got a white tablecloth and put permanent markers at the side of the dishes near the silverware. 🖊🍴 I had everyone at the table lift their plates, write their favorite memory and what they were thankful for under their plates. The little children traced their hands and drew turkeys. Still one of my favorite tablecloths to date. So grateful to set aside this time to remind us of God’s abundance that He has showered us with in 2017. YOU are at the top of my THANK YOU list. Everyone knows that our fans are family to us and many of you have become my very best friends over the years. I am so grateful for your love, inspiration and laughter. I LOVE, admire and adore you to pieces! ❤️ Who are you thankful for? Dig into your memory banks and photo/digital archives & share your fondest Thanksgiving photo with me on my Facebook page. Also, my bro @DonnyOsmond and I are excited to be among the performers and to watch the 86th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade this Sunday. It will air Dec. 15th at 8/7c on @thecw (set your DVR!) 📺 God Bless YOU, and may you all have a #HappyThanksgiving! And don’t forget to eat your vegetables!!!! 🦃💋 #HisDay #GodBless #ItsABeautifulLife #LoveAtHome #FamilyFirst #PreciousTime
