Tom Cruise was "super excited" to spend Thanksgiving (22.11.12) with his daughter Suri.

The 50-year-old actor has been working on 'All You Need Is Kill' in London and hadn't seen his six-year-old daughter - who lives in New York with her mother Katie Holmes - in over three months and Tom was thrilled when Suri flew to the UK so they could spend the holiday together.

A source told People magazine: "He's super excited about the visit."

Tom sent a family member to New York to pick up Suri and a friend added to Usmagazine.com: "It's the first time he's seen Suri in a long time."

Meanwhile, Katie, 33, who had the day off from her Broadway play 'Dead Accounts' spent the holiday with her family in her native Ohio.

Explaining her holiday plans recently, she said: "We have Thursday off, so I'm going to have a chance to go home with my family.

"My sister makes a really good sausage stuffing and my mom makes a great turkey.

"Many years ago, my dad started this tradition where we all do this run in the local park.

"It's a three mile run called the Turkey Trot. There's even a prize, which I haven't won yet. But it's really fun."

Katie returned to New York on Friday (23.11.12).
