All Mariah Carey wants for the holidays is to put her "family first."

The 45-year-old singer did just that on Thursday when she spent Thanksgiving with her ex-husband, Nick Cannon, and their 4-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Earlier in the day, Carey kicked off the 89th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Donning a vibrant red gown, white wrap jacket, satin gloves and a diamond statement necklace, she dazzled while performing her classic holiday hit, "All I Want For Christmas Is You," atop a float.

Carey, who is now dating Australian billionaire James Parker, announced her split from Cannon in August 2014 after six years of marriage. Despite the breakup, the two have remained close for their children.

In October, Mariah threw a Halloween soiree and invited Nick to the celebration so the two could spend time together with their kids.
