Katie Holmes & Suri Cruise Seen Out In New York City, Both Plan To Have "A Lot Of Family Time" At Christmas

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise were seen out and about in New York City on Thursday night. The mother-daughter duo were on-hand to support Hillary Clinton.

Katie took 9-year-old Suri to meet Hillary and posted a black-and-white photo of them on Instagram talking with her and her daughter, Chelsea Clinton. In the image, Suri is holding a teddy bear and talking to Chelsea. Suri looks on as Chelsea is bent down having a discussion with her.

Katie is seen in a black, long-sleeved top with her hair pulled back while Suri is in a warm, floral dress. Her hair is down and gathered at the top to one side with a clip. Holmes added the caption, "Mothers and daughters #wearewithhillary."

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise visit Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser on Thursday night in New York City. Katie posted the black-and-white image onto Instagram with the caption, "Mothers and daughters #wearewithhillary."

According to Us magazine, the function was a "family-friendly" fundraiser.

Holmes was seen in a black, long-sleeved top while Suri had a heavy floral dress on. Her hair was gathered to one side with a cute clip holding it.

On December 1, Katie Holmes interviewed with Today and talked about how sensitive and caring her daughter is.

"My little one is very, very generous and very sensitive. So she's always [saying], 'Mom, lets give my old toys to people who need it,'" Holmes said. "So we are always doing that."

The holidays for Katie and Suri will be quiet. It'll be a simple occasion in which they'll enjoy "a lot of family time."

An OK! magazine report a few days ago claimed Suri's father, Tom Cruise, was going to spend Christmas with her in New York at Katie's apartment. Not long after the report, Holmes' rep corrected the story by saying it was simply "untrue."

Reports keep coming down the pike suggesting that Tom is trying to reunite with his daughter. An In Touch magazine report recently claimed that the Hollywood star wants to "reintroduce" himself to Suri, supposedly believing that now he thinks she's old enough to understand Scientology. Those rumors have also been called untrue.

Tabloids constantly report that Cruise hasn't seen his daughter in over two years. There was a rumor that he saw Suri in July for a few hours in New York. He was doing some work for Mission: Impossible and allegedly secretly met his daughter at an apartment owned by someone on his management team.

"Katie will have to get up for the fight of her life," if she plans to stop Tom, an insider told InTouch(via Hollywood Life). The report stated that Tom is intent on "play[ing] a larger role" in his daughter's life.

"After he finishes filming Jack Reacher II in New Orleans, he's planning on making a big effort to re-bond with his daughter," the source added, "and maybe even try for more custody," the source said.

Whatever arrangements really exist between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes when it comes to their daughter is unknown. It's presumed since Tom is a devout member of the Church of Scientology, that he doesn't see his daughter since Katie is making sure she keeps her distance from it. Their divorce centered around the controversy of involving their daughter in Scientology.

Cruise is never photographed with his daughter, which makes their estranged situation worth more in tabloid fodder.
