How Shannon Storms Beador Spent Thanksgiving 2023

Shannon's Instagram post included photos of her and her daughters, SophieAdeline, and Stella, as well as solo shots of the girls. Her twins, Adeline and Stella, are currently in their freshman year at college, with Adeline attending Parsons School of Design in New York City and Stella participating in the University of Southern California's transfer program and living in Paris for a year. 

"It’s been a busy holiday week! This is the first Thanksgiving where I haven’t had all of my girls with me!" Shannon's caption began. "Adeline came home from NYC for the first time since leaving for school and attended her friend’s Debutante Ball. I was grateful to spend a few days with her and then flew to Nashville to have Thanksgiving with Sophie, my mother and siblings."

After that, Shannon and her eldest daughter — who's also in college — headed to Waco, Texas. There, "I watched her run the Baylor line in their last football game," Shannon's caption continued. "She made the big screen! Stella sent pictures throughout the week from her travels with friends in Paris."

She added that the trip was "very fun" and that she's "grateful" for her family.

That's not all Shannon revealed, though.
