WASHINGTON — Former First Lady Michelle Obama shared a family photo ahead of Thanksgiving.

"From our family to yours," she tweeted.

Her husband, former President Barack Obama, shared his own message of gratitude on Thursday.

"Today, we give thanks for our blessings, give back to those around us, and enjoy some time — and turkey, and maybe a little football — with the ones we love," the former commander in chief wrote on Twitter.

The post included an image of the family volunteering.
