Jessica Alba Says She Still Feels Everything Her ‘Sweet’ Daughters Do Is ‘Groundbreaking’

12/10/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Jessica Alba‘s daughters are the (unwitting) stars of her social media accounts, but she just can’t help herself — she is so proud of her girls.

“They’re just so funny to me,” she tells PEOPLE of daughters Honor Marie, 7½, and Haven Garner, 4, at the 2015 March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon.

So what is the mogul capturing for SnapChat? Just “what every 7 and 4-year-old do.”

“To me, it’s all groundbreaking, but they’re just average, funny, sweet little girls,” she shares.

Alba, who was presented with the 2015 March of Dimes Grace Kelly award at the luncheon, says she was excited to receive the “huge honor.”

“The work that they do is so massive, and it’s so important, and it really does save lives,” she says of March of Dimes, adding, “I made healthier choices as a pregnant woman because of the work that March of Dimes has done. They really lay the foundation to give the most vulnerable the best chance at life.”

Alba’s already focused on her next big project, however: the holidays.

“We always have an 80-person sit-down dinner at my house so I’m preparing for it,” she shares. The actress hosts the dinner, which is potluck style, but also has some help in the kitchen from Haven and Honor.t

“They like to mix and they like to mush their hands in things, but that’s kind of it,” she jokes.
