Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and their daughter Suri took in a performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker Friday and they're all sweeter for it.
The family was getting an early start celebrating Katie's birthday. The actress -- herself a dancer -- turns 32 today!
Following the performance at the David H. Koch Theater in New York, the Cruise clan was ushered backstage for a personal meet-and-greet with the dancers, including Sugarplum Fairy Ashley Bouder.
Tom, Katie and Suri had just arrived in the Big Apple from Vancouver where Cruise is shooting Mission Impossible 4.
Thursday, Holmes and her trendsetting daughter visited Vancouver's Stanley Park, where they took a ride aboard a festive train that chugs through the park.
Suri even got to meet a Snowman and of course -- the man himself --Santa Claus.
Now, the tables have turned and it's time for her mom to get all the attention.
Happy birthday, Katie!
