Katie Holmes is feeling #blessed. The Dawson's Creek star rang in her mom's birthday with a seriously sweet girls' only surprise party over the weekend, and her artsy snaps of her embracing her daughter Suri are giving us all the feels.

The 37-year-old proved that family comes first in a series of black-and-white images posted to Instagram on Sunday highlighting the festivities.

One shot shows the mom-of-one, whose hair is pulled up into an elaborate braid, hiding alongside Suri to surprise the birthday girl. She captioned the artistic photo using the hashtags #surprise #happybirthdaymom #family #friends #gratitude.

Holmes then documented scenes from the party, including one of Suri dancing with a little girl, and a few of Katie cradling Suri when the party was over.

"#Blessed #goodnight #gratitude #happybirthdaymom #family #love," the actress captioned a sweet close-up shot of her hugging her 10-year-old daughter, who wore a white lace dress and matching hair bow for the occasion.
