Hoda Kotb celebrates Thanksgiving with daughters Hope and Haley

It’s been an exciting fall season for the family.

Hours after making a grand entrance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Hoda Kotb was beaming in photos of her family gathering that evening.

“Happy thanksgiving from our family to yours,” she wrote in the caption of a picture posted on Instagram on Thursday, Nov. 23.

The photo shows the TODAY co-anchor in a festive orange sweater and surrounded by loved ones, including her daughters Hope, 4, and Haley, 6, and her mother, Sameha Kotb.

In another picture, Hoda, her family and their guests gather around a table full of Thanksgiving dinner favorites. A kids’ table is in the background and a football game is underway on the TV.

Hoda also shared videos on Instagram showing the silly side of the holidays.

In the clips, Hope is seen hanging off the side of a bed, wearing pajama bottoms on her head and sunglasses on her chin with a pair of boots positioned on the floor to make it look like someone is standing. In the last video of the carousel, Haley joins her little sister in the goofy festivities.

"Saw this on insta!!! My kids had us cracking up!!!! Here's to the little things xo," Hoda wrote in the caption.

On TODAY with Hoda & Jenna Nov. 27, Hoda recalled the memory that caused "hysterical laughter."

"My kids were laying on the beds with their heads hung over the edge ... they were in hysterical laughter, we had so much fun."

Hoda then went on to encourage others to try the silly idea that takes "five seconds" and involves just "pajama bottoms, glasses and shoes."

It’s been a fall full of excitement for the family. Standing aboard the famous Tom Turkey float at Thursday’s Thanksgiving parade, Hoda helped lead a procession that featured 5,000 volunteers, 16 character balloons and 26 floats.

Each year at the parade, Hoda sends secret signals to her children along the route so that they know their mom is looking at them.

On Wednesday, Nov. 22, Hoda’s daughters and nieces joined her on TODAY for a special Thanksgiving edition of the "Yuck or Yum?" segment.

In October, Hoda and her ex, Joel Schiffman, did some urban trick-or-treating with their daughters on Halloween.

Hoda had her first child, Haley, via adoption in 2017. She adopted Hope two years later.
