Holmes, 34, and her 6-year-old daughter shared a traditional Midwestern Christmas in Holmes' hometown, Toledo, Ohio.
"Suri spent Christmas day with her mother and her family in Ohio," a source told People magazine. "It was a wonderful day."
Holmes then rushed back to Manhattan Dec. 26 to resume performances of her Broadway play "Dead Accounts," while Suri joined her father and siblings, Bella, 20, and Connor, 17.
Earlier this month, Cruise, 50, told People that he was looking forward to the family holiday.
"We have got lots of very special things planned," he said at the London premiere of his film "Jack Reacher." "We are all going to be together."
No word on where that is, but People reported that Cruise's private jet was spotted in Telluride, Colo., Wednesday.
Reports recently surfaced that Cruise has returned to the dating scene six months after his divorce, but People staff writer Kristen Mascia told " Good Morning America" today, "All sources are telling us that he is single. He's continuing to prioritize his family and his work. He's certainly been social. That's the way he is and he likes being out and about."
As for his ex-wife, Holmes, she seems to be leading a much quieter existence. The only love she's been spotted with lately is her and Cruise's daughter, Suri.
She may get a little more free time to spend with Suri as well. The Associated Press reports that "Dead Accounts" will close January 6, 2013, seven weeks earlier than initially planned. The play opened late last month to mostly negative reviews.
