Moved by the nostalgia of Thanksgiving, the mother of two took to Instagram with loving messages to both of her daughters—Olive, 5, and Frankie, 3—on Sunday. The first was a note dedicated to Olive, written alongside a sweet mother-daughter snap. "The love of my life. Olive," the heartfelt message begins. "This is a very special time. And may it bring out the best in all of us. And all the spirit of family and loved ones." The Santa Clarita Diet actress continued: "I never knew I could love so much. I never knew I would be so lucky one day to be a mom. Thank you to all our many blessings for our family. And we wish them right back to yours." Barrymore, 42, followed up her letter to Olive with one to her youngest daughter, Frankie. This time, the actress waxed poetic about motherhood in the caption of a photo of herself and the tot riding a carousel. "The other love of my life. Frankie," the post reads. "Side by side, holding hands. Best moments. I wish I could freeze them in time. To the old sounds of the carousel. Going round and round. These holidays can make me so nostalgic and just a big pile of mush!" Happy holidays to this beautiful little family!
