Katie Holmes helped daughter Suri Cruise celebrate her 8th birthday in style. She treated her daughter, along with a few guests, to dinner at Nobu Next Door in New York City on Friday night. Following their meal, the restaurant brought a dessert out to Suri and it was topped with a birthday candle.

That wasn't the only treat in store for Suri. She was the recipient of many gifts--some from FAO Schwarz--that were delivered to Katie Holmes's New York City apartment. Bouquets of balloons were delivered throughout the day as well.

In addition, Holmes posted a photo of a dozen frozen cupcakes that spelled out 'Happy Birthday, Suri' to her Twitter account. It's unknown whether Katie baked the cupcakes for her daughter or ordered them in from a local boutique bakery.

Suri Cruise is also the daughter of Mission Impossible and Jerry Maguire star Tom Cruise. It's uncertain if Tom was around to help celebrate Suri's big day or if he plans to celebrate with her some other time. Tom Cruise is often away on location for long periods of time, but takes Suri on lavish vacations fairly often.

It's hard to believe that Suri Cruise is already 8 years old. The little girl who Katie Holmes feared would grow up in the Church of Scientology now attends Catholic School in New York City and is often spotted attending events around town with the former Dawson's Creek star. While Suri is known for being a little bit spoiled, it was sort of a given that she would turn out that way. It was almost as if both Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise tried to one up each other following their divorce, in an effort to win Suri's affections.

It was only a few months ago when Suri was spotted yelling at the paparazzi to get away from her and her famous mom.

Katie Holmes has at least stayed grounded and has made a life of consistency for Suri--even if she is constantly privy to many of the finer things in life. It will certainly be interesting to observe Suri Cruise when she is about 13 years old.
