LeAnn Rimes is already getting into the Christmas spirit.

The singer has dropped a new holiday album, Today Is Christmas, and she stopped by The View to perform “We Need a Little Christmas” on Monday – and dish on her own traditions with husband Eddie Cibrian and his sons Mason, 12, and Jake, 8.

During the family’s first Christmas together, Cibrian “went out to the mall and picked up this little ornament that’s four peas in a pod and put our names on it,” said Rimes, 33. “It was the sweetest thing!”

Since then, the actor has bought a new decoration for the tree every year. This Christmas, the boys won’t be with them until the afternoon – so Rimes said she and Cibrian, 42, are looking forward to some alone time, “which will be kind of nice.”

Rimes and Cibrian got married in April 2011, but winter is an extra special time for the couple, who got engaged over the holidays.

“We sometimes will go down to the place where he proposed to me,” Rimes said on The View. “We’ve gone and had a little drink down there and hung out before we go to his parents’ house, because his mom always cooks this big Cuban feast.”

Meanwhile, Mason and Jake’s mom Brandi Glanville is also focusing on family.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, 43, shared an early throwback photo of her sons on Instagram on Monday.

“I couldn’t wait for #tbt!” she captioned the snapshot. “Look how small my [babies] are!”
