Ben Affleck to celebrate holidays with Jennifer Garner

BEN Affleck and estranged wife Jennifer Garner are still "a unit."

The former couple, who announced their split in June after 10 years of marriage, are planning to put their issues aside to celebrate Thanksgiving together next week for the sake of their children, Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three.

A source close to the duo told PEOPLE magazine: "Jen and Ben are figuring out right now how they can best spend the holidays together. [Jennifer] wants to get along with Ben for the kids' sake."

The family will also spend Christmas together next month, as they are both determined to provide a stable and loving home for their children.

Another source told E! News: "They are a unit. They are all about the kids and making sure they are okay. They are committed to parenting together."

Ben, 43, is currently filming 'Live By Night' in his native Boston, but flew back to Los Angeles last weekend to spend some quality time with his son and daughters.

The Oscar winner was spotted taking them to a toy shop and to decorate cupcakes with Jennifer, 43, last Saturday.

An eyewitness said: "Ben and Jen chatted a bit. But mostly they seemed focused on making the day fun for the kids."
