As the family snuggled up in red outfits on Christmas Eve, the songstress played a bit of a joke on her hubby and their 2-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, getting someone to take a snap of them when they were knocked out sleeping in bed.
"Shh! Santa is on his way!," Carey captioned the snap on Instagram Friday.
That someone was Santa Claus, who the Grammy winner snapped leaving gifts by their chimney in a red bag, writing on Instagram, "We have a mutual understanding."
Next, Santa headed back into their room to surprise "Dem Babies."
The doting mom of two went on to share another precious snap of their son Moroccan skiing for the first time, posting a photo of the cutie laughing while skiing on a mini-trail.
"Rocky on the slopes..first time skiing at 2.5... Come on! #aspen," Mariah wrote Friday.
The family of four seems to be having a blast together in Aspen, spending quality time on the slopes and cozying up indoors during the holidays.
Carey took the fun a step further when she shared a shot of one of her fave "traditions," walking her dog in the snow in a red bikini…and nothing else.
