Happy holidays, indeed! Four months after announcing their separation, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas reunited for a fun family outing with their kids Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10.

The couple, whose 13th wedding anniversary was in November, were photographed together for the first time since August on Sunday, Dec. 22, in New York City. Both were dressed in black and wearing their wedding bands.

The family of four started their day with lunch at Manhattan eatery Orso, after which they reportedly hit up the Broadway musical Motown and a showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Together since 1999 and married since 2000, the 69-year-old Behind the Candelabra star and the 44-year-old Welsh actress announced this summer that they were "taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage." Douglas was optimistic, though, telling Jay Leno in October that he thought there was still a chance they'd work things out.

"I've been away for a while, but everything should hopefully be on the up and up," he said at the time. "Sometimes people take a little bit of a break, but it doesn't necessarily mean that's the end. So I'm very hopeful."
