Mariah Carey is keeping up her title as Queen of Christmas.

The songstress and her children — 6-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex Nick Cannon — headed out this weekend to bring a little holiday cheer into their New York City home.

Clad in a red leather jacket and ripped jeans, Carey documented the family’s trip to the Christmas tree lot on Instagram. After stopping to pose for pictures with the decorations, including a giant tree glowing with blue lights, they showed off the winner.

“We found our #nyc tree!! 🎄🎉” the 47-year-old captioned the image.

Also in attendance was Carey’s beau Bryan Tanaka, who gave the singer a lift as they posed for a picture shared on her Instagram story.

Once they got home, the work had only just begun. In a video, Carey explained that they usually wait until they arrive in Aspen to go all out on Christmas decorations, but they’re getting an early start this year.

The holiday season got off to a rough start for the singer, as she was forced to cancel her first few “All I Want for Christmas Is You” concerts due to illness.

However, Carey looked healthy and happy in an Instagram post she shared on Thursday, giving her followers an update while inside of a recording studio.

“Feeling better and back at work!” she wrote in the caption. “Looking forward to seeing you today at the World AIDS Day 2017 concert and then starting the Christmas tour festivities! 😘💖🎄🎅”
