Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck took their daughters Violet and Seraphina to lunch at the Brentwood Country Mart in LA this afternoon. Jennifer covered her baby bump in a bright sweater while the younger girls wore dresses for the meal. The foursome celebrated Thanksgiving in California this year and Violet and Seraphina were spotted playing outside with their grandparents when they weren't indoors with family. It's an especially fun holiday season for the Garner-Afflecks since they are awaiting the arrival of their third child. They're just one of many celebrity families enjoying the Fall and have been frequenting the farmers market and the playground recently.

The whole Stefani-Rossdale crew went to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live in LA yesterday. It's the second year in a row that Gwen has taken the boys to the show, since they also attended a post-Thanksgiving performance in 2010. Gwen's parents, Dennis and Patti, joined the foursome this time after they all celebrated together on Thursday. Gwen, Gavin, Kingston, and Zuma were perfectly dressed in Fall attire for the festivities as they arrived at Gwen's family's house before dinner. They were able to spend the holiday together since Gavin was on a break from touring with Bush, though he's already back on the road. The band is playing a show in Lake Tahoe this evening and will continue traveling across the country into December.
Ryan Gosling popped up last night on the Paris set of Holly Motors, where his lady friend Eva Mendes was dressed up for an evening shoot. He left temporarily to go pick up Red Bulls at a nearby store, but was back soon enough to offer Eva some hugs between scenes. Ryan touched down in Paris only yesterday after a stint in the US working on his own projects, from Lawless with Rooney Mara to The Gangster Squad with Emma Stone. He and Eva wrapped things up yesterday by heading out to dinner in the city with some of her cast mates from the movie.
Rachel Zoe braved the crowds with baby Skyler during a Black Friday outing in Beverly Hills yesterday. Her husband Rodger Berman joined them, as did her assistant Jeremiah Brent. The group checked out the Gap and stopped into Starbucks for a warm drink as they enjoyed a busy day of shopping. Rachel observed Thanksgiving with family at her LA home and Jeremiah got in on the holiday fun when he stopped by to give Rachel's niece Sophie a few interior design tips. Jeremiah had even more to celebrate on Thursday since it was also his birthday. He's a new addition to the team, though it looks like he's fitting right in on one of Rachel's regular retail adventures.
David Beckham brought his sons Romeo and Cruz along to a Brooks Brothers store in LA yesterday on Black Friday. Despite being a family of Brits living in the US, it seems the Beckhams are fans of the annual Thanksgiving traditions. Victoria tweeted recently, "Hope all you fashion bunnies had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Lots of love to all of you and your beautiful families." Victoria and David certainly have a lot to be thankful for in 2011. They welcomed their fourth child, daughter Harper, in July, and David and the Galaxy just won the MLS Championship. There may be a whole new set of holiday practices for the Beckhams to learn next year. According to reports, David and Victoria are seriously considering relocating to Paris so he can play with that city's St. Germain team.
Penelope Cruz joined her Venuto al Mondo director Sergio Castellitto and costar Emile Hirsch last night for the opening ceremony of the 29th annual Turin Film Festival. Margaret Mazzantini, who wrote the novel on which the movie is based, also attended with her husband Sergio. Penelope's been shooting the project for the last few months with Sergio and Emile, traveling from Bosnia to Italy. The picture's slated for release next year, and, in addition to the Turin celebration, they've also begun promoting Venuto at the Rome Film Festival.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves touched down at LAX yesterday. They arrived back in LA with their two little ones, Vida and Levi. Three-year-old Levi will soon celebrate his sister's birthday, since Vida turns two on January 3. Matthew also just passed a milestone, ringing in 42 on Nov. 4.
He and Camila are fresh off Thanksgiving with their family. He's reunited with Camila and the children after stints away on a couple movie sets. Matthew and pal Reese Witherspoon teamed up on the Jeff Nichols-directed drama Mud. A different sort of picture kept Matthew busy in October — Matthew McConaughey was shirtless for portions of the stripper comedy Magic Mike, which he worked alongside other handsome men like Channing Tatum and Matt Bomer.
