SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their children spent the holidays in Springfield visiting Pitt's family. People magazine reports the couple joined Pitt's parents in touring the Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center on the St. John's campus. The Pitt family donated $1 million for the facility which is named for Pitt's mom.
We received at least two reports (and there were more on Facebook) that Pitt took the kids shopping at the Kmart on South Campbell. As we heard the story, Pitt autographed his receipt for a sales clerk who didn't immediately recognize the Hollywood star.
We also hear Jolie took the kids to Barnes & Noble. Deanah Handley Courtney took a picture with her cell phone and posted it to her Facebook page. The picture has been circulating on celebrity gossip blogs, although we've seen it incorrectly attributed to being taken at a Starbucks.
Don't expect the clan to show up for First Night. Just Jared has pictures of Jolie and the children boarding a private plane at the Springfield-Branson National Airport on Thursday.
