I can’t post my 2017 Thanksgiving family dinner photo because it hasn’t happened yet.📱🤗 LOL But seriously, here’s wishing you and your special ones an abundance of warmth and new, unforgettable memories. 

Looking back at pictures of wonderful family events like this one… always shifts me into a warm and fuzzy Thanksgiving mode. It’s no secret, I LOVE the holidays and today kicks off a whole series of ALL of my favorites things. 🎶😁 ‘Tis the season to express our appreciation and gratitude to the many people who bless our lives!👍 

Who are you thankful for and what are some of your fondest Thanksgiving memories? Dig into your memory banks and photo/digital archives & share some of those precious moments. 

One of my favorite and memorable Thanksgivings was when I bought a plain white tablecloth for our feast and then placed permanent markers at the side of everyone’s plates right next to their silverware. 🖊🍴 I had everyone at the table lift their plates and write their favorite memory of what they were thankful for. The little children traced their hands and drew turkeys. 🦃😊 Still one of my favorite tablecloths to date. ☺️♥️

I’m always so grateful that this special time of year is set aside to remember God’s abundance that He has showered upon us in 2017. I count my many blessings one by one and YOU are certainly 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 special friends over the years. I am so grateful for your love, inspiration and laughter. I L❤️VE, admire and adore you all to pieces!

Let’s make a pact this year, okay? Won’t you join me in putting aside our cell phones and other electronic gadgets this Thanksgiving? Except television for football games 🏈 my husband said that’s going too far. 🤪🤣 Oh yeah, one more TV program you can watch... 😊 Instead of doing a Christmas tour this year, Donny Osmond and I are excited to be amongst the performers at the 86th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade this Sunday. It will air Friday, December 15th at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT on The CW (set your DVR’s! 📺)

So how about getting away from the hustle and bustle of our crazy, busy lives to spending QUALITY time with our loved ones. Let us commit to giving them our undivided attention on this very special day. After all, God’s Thanksgiving gift to us is a total of 86,400 seconds in this day. Make every second count and let me know how it goes.

God Bless YOU, and may you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! And don’t forget to eat your vegetables!!!! 🦃💋
