Katie Holmes celebrated her mother's birthday with a surprise party over the weekend, but photos from the big event prove she also celebrated the joys of motherhood.

Holmes shared several party pics on Instagram, including a couple sweet shots that show her and daughter Suri Cruise cuddled up close together.

The "Ray Donovan" star let hashtags do the talking in the captions that accompanied the black-and-white photos, such as "#blessed," "#gratitude," "#family" and "#love."
