The ‘Blue Lagoon’ star wore a red Alexandre Vauthier dress with black stockings and matching heels for the family outing. Her teenage daughters wore matching black outfits and paired them with white overcoats.
During an appearance in an episode of 'The Rachael Ray Show' earlier in December, Shields spoke about her family's holiday traditions and explained that she doesn't cook for the holidays as she is busy making "Christmas movies." "They are always complaining to me, 'How come you don't cook? Other mothers cook,'" she said, referring to her daughters. "I'm sorry, I'm busy doing Christmas movies for you to watch," she said in response to her own question while being rewarded with applause from the audience.
Shields said that it is her husband who typically does the cooking for Thanksgiving and further shared a hilarious tradition that the family follows when it comes to their meal. "The tradition that happens now is my husband smokes brisket and pork shoulder and all of that. We have to bring them through security," she explained while sharing that her family celebrates the holiday at her stepmother’s house in Florida. "You're traveling with meat, and [airport security] know us and they're like 'Brisket? Brisket again? Really?' " she said, letting out a laugh. "They see us coming and then you see the little pork shoulder go through the x-ray. That's our tradition."
