Katie Holmes is one grateful mom.

The actress, 37, shared several sweet photos taken at her mother Kathleen‘s surprise birthday party on Sunday. In several photos, Holmes expresses her love and appreciation for her 10-year-old daughter Suri.

In one post, Holmes snapped a shot of her little girl dancing in a white dress with a matching bow at the party. She captioned the black-and-white photo, “#happybirthdaymom #surprise #gratitude #family.”

In another post from the festivities, Holmes is seated with a blissful smile on her face as she cuddles with her daughter and another little girl.

“#gratitude #littleangels #blessed,” she captioned the photo.

And Holmes ended the series of adorable family photos with a particularly sweet moment between the mother-daughter duo.

“#blessed #goodnight #gratitude #happybirthdaymom #family #love,” she captioned the photo of Suri nuzzling up against her mom.

Holmes shares her daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise. The couple were married in 2006 and Holmes filed for divorce in June 2012.

In a 2014 interview with PEOPLE, Holmes said Suri “means everything to me … I’m learning every day, and I have been since the minute I became a mom.”
