Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner decided to stick around Los Angeles for Thanksgiving, spending the long weekend at home with Violet and Seraphina. The foursome went out to lunch together on Black Friday and brunch on Saturday. Violet carried her reading material for the outing, and the four-year-old's love of reading is something Jennifer wholeheartedly supports with her philanthropic work. Jennifer showed off the latest in her string of covetable bags, following up her black Chanel and Fendi Peekaboo with a Cartier cross-body. While Ben made his hot return to California earlier in the week, he has spent much of the Fall off shooting his Terrence Malick movie in Oklahoma. He ended up skipping the Stockholm Film Festival where The Town closed things out, though he recently spoke of his second directorial project's 2011 award season chances. He also shared the crazy memories of winning an Oscar at 25 for Good Will Hunting and why he's not taking on the Superman reboot. Golden Globe nominations are just a few weeks away, but first up is another exciting day for the Garner-Affleck crew when Violet turns five on Wednesday.
