For Hilary Duff, 'tis the season for making family memories!
On Monday, the How I Met Your Father actress shared to Instagram a series of photos that were snapped while she and her husband Matthew Koma, 36, took daughters Mae James, 2, Banks Violet, 5 — along with Luca, 11, Duff's son with her ex, Mike Comrie — for a day of holiday cheer at The Grove in Los Angeles.
"We love this time of year 🥰," Duff, 36, wrote, captioning, the festive Instagram slides.
Among the activities the family of five took part in was a visit with Santa Claus himself. In the first snap, the three kids sat with Jolly Old St. Nicholas on an ornate red and gold throne in front of a red backdrop decked out with Christmas decorations.
A happy-looking Luca, who wore jeans and a sporty black-and-gold jacket, held Mae on his lap in her adorable red dress, beige sweater and ruby red slippers with a bronze gold bag.
Banks, who was all smiles in pigtails, was perched next to them in a cozy white sweatshirt and ruffled silver skirt with red knee-high socks and a crossbody black purse.
Duff and Koma also joined in the fun, posing with their kids and Father Christmas. She looked sleek in an all-black outfit adorned with gold jewelry, while Koma rocked some holiday hipster fashion in his short-sleeved blue button-down and green khaki-colored pants and cap.
Other pictures in the Instagram gallery included a selfie with Duff and her two oldest. and one Koma appeared to snap of the whole family. There was also a photo of the group taken while they stood in front of the famed outdoor shopping center's giant Christmas tree.
In the comments, many fans expressed the wholesome nature of the photos and their infectious energy together.
"These pics cured my depression," one follower commented, while another wrote, "Literally living for this era of real life Hilary Duff posting normal things all over social media — loving it."
Duff also gave fans a peak at her family's Thanksgiving on Thursday, sharing a series of shots on Sunday to kick off the holiday season.
"Thankful 🤎," Duff captioned the Instagram images, which showed Luca busy in the kitchen, Mae tasting food, and Banks having fun with their extended family as Duff appears to pull it all together effortlessly.
