Home for the holidays! Jessica Simpson was getting in the Thanksgiving spirit late on Wednesday, November 26 as she shared a snap of her kids Maxwell, 2, and Ace, 17 months, having fun during a boat trip on Texas' Lake Austin.

The mom-of-two, who married husband Eric Johnson in July of this year, feels she has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season, in particular her two beautiful, blonde haired kids.

"Thankful for these two WILD TURKEYS!," the singer and actress captioned the adorable picture, which showed her two little monkeys, safely done up in life jackets, hanging on the boat's railing while the wind caught their flowing locks.

Simpson returned to her home state of Texas on Friday, Nov. 21, along with sister Ashlee Simpson, for a public appearance at Dallas' Belk Galleria department store the next day.

The glamorous sisters were launching their new Home Collection at the store but it was their kids, Maxwell, Ace and Ashlee's son Bronx, 6, who stole the show, posing for photos with their famous moms and even helping out with autographs.

The Simpson sisters and their families (including Johnson and Ashlee's new husband Evan Ross) are spending the Thanksgiving holiday together in Austin.
