Mensagem:  Dear Roberto,

I would not say "her holiday". Instead of it, I would rearrange the phrase differently, for instance:

A) Both of them spending the holiday at the same place:
Ann and her daughter came over to spend the holiday with us.

B) Each of them spending the holiday at different places:
Ann brought her daughter to spend the holiday with us and Ann left after dropping her off.

You could say - "and she left", but it could generate misunderstandings.

Best regards,
Ron
