Ben Affleck smile book charles dickins leather jacket boots sweet adorable cute

Ben Affleck and his youngest daughter Seraphina ran errands in Brentwood on Thursday morning, and even though Ben's mind seemed to be elsewhere, Sera was all smiles as she flipped through her copy of Illustrated Stories from Dickens. So cute!!!

We're thinking Ben will take a brief break from work to spend the holidays with his family, but he already has a handful of new film projects in the can for 2013. What's next? As we previously reported, Kristen Stewart is in talks to star opposite Ben in the upcoming flick Focus, which follows "a veteran con-man (Affleck) who becomes romantically involved with a newcomer (Stewart) and finds the relationship challenged by their illegal activities. When they meet again down the line, the complications have long-lasting effects." Hmm, wonder if wifey Jennifer Garner will be paying any visits to the set of that film?
