Mariah Carey and her fam spent the New Year in Australia (thanks to the start of her tour down under), and what better way to say hello to 2013 than to bring out your entire family during your concert!

Leave it to Mimi to surprise the sure-to-have-been excited crowd when she not only asked hubby Nick Cannon to join her on stage, but also they're adorable children Moroccan and Monroe.

Dressed in a short glittery dress, and looking as svelte as ever, the singer greeted her little munchkins by kneeling alongside them and sharing a laugh with the crowd. And ever the Twitter user, Carey took to the site to share pictures for those who weren't lucky enough to witness the cute event.

"Ms. Monroe greets the audience in Australia.. Thank u 4 coming!!" read the tweet, which was of course accompanied by the adorableness of her children!
