Mariah Carey and her little mini-me, Monroe. (Instagram)" height="400" width="620">All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas is family time in Aspen! The singer, hubby Nick Cannon, and their adorable twins Monroe and Moroccan are all spending the holiday season in the wintry city, and she posted a bunch of photos on Instagram for her fans to see all the fun. In one pic, Carey is nuzzling her 20-month-old daughter Monroe as she sits in a director's chair emblazoned with her famous mother's initials and signature butterfly. In the background, a Christmas Nativity scene can be sitting on a table. 'Merry Christmas!!! – From MC – MC,' she wrote on Thursday.
Earlier that day, Carey posted a silly pic of her 32-year-old husband dancing in front of their Christmas tree in his sweats Ö and her lamb slippers (the singer's fans are called her 'lambs'); Behind him, reindeer statues decorated a long coffee table and garland and white lights were wrapped around the wooden staircase.
The 'American Idol' judge, 42, also managed to sneak in a little last-minute Christmas shopping. She was spotted by herself perusing a Gucci shop and another local jewelry store while wearing a fur-lined white parka vest, tight jeans, and wedge suede boots.
After the holidays, it will be back to work for Carey. The 12th season of 'Idol,' which also features new judges Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, premieres January 16. She's also been hard at work on her 14th album, which is due to be released in March. "I'm collaborating with a lot of my favorite people but the main thing is [that] I'm not trying to follow any particular trend, I want it to be well received,' Carey has said about her new songs. 'I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy.'
