Ivanka Trump is getting into the holiday spirit with her family! On Sunday, 10 December, the first daughter, who moved from Manhattan to Washington, D.C. earlier this year, enjoyed a fun-filled day of winter activities with her children. The Women Who Work author, 36, and her husband Jared Kushner paid a visit to a local ice rink with their oldest children — Arabella, six, and Joseph, four.
The foursome bundled up in winter gear as they braved the cold D.C. weather to ice skate. Ivanka, who is also a mum to one-year-old son Theodore, shared a picture of herself hugging her little girl on the ice. The mum-of-three simply captioned the tender photo: "Ice Skating ⛸."
Arabella also joined her dad and younger brother for another photo opp. "Sunday morning with this crew! ⛸ ," Ivanka wrote alongside a sweet photo of her 36-year-old husband, daughter and Joseph, who skated with help from a penguin aide.
Later in the day, the family returned to the comforts of their house for a holiday baking session. President Donald Trump's daughter recorded a video of multiple chocolate chip cookie trays, while her children bobbed their heads to the beloved Sesame Street character Cookie Monster's song C is for Cookie. The Trump-Kushner brood wrapped their day by the fireplace. Ivanka noted on her Instagram Story that it was the "perfect way to end the day."
A few days prior on Thursday, 7 December, the family, who is Jewish, celebrated Hanukkah at the White House. Ivanka's father hosted the annual Hanukkah reception, which was initiated in 2001 by former President George W. Bush. Jared and his stylish wife proudly looked on as their kids, Arabella and Joseph, lit the Menorah's first candle, while the crowd sang the lyric poem Ma'oz Tzur.
Ivanka, who converted to Judaism before marrying Jared in 2009, looked conservative, yet chic for the holiday celebration wearing a black metallic embroidered silk-blend cardigan by Alexander McQueen, which she paired with the label's matching maxi skirt.
Discussing her post-election life with Dr. Oz in September, Ivanka admitted: "This is such a remarkable journey for myself, my husband, our family. It's such an unbelievable privilege to be able to serve this country." She added, "For a country that has given so much to me and my family, to be able to try and give back and to be laser focused on doing that is a blessing."
