Did they help you with the -- it's cute. Some of the 12 days of Christmas gifts. Not your partridge in a pear tree. It's fun and over the top in our family. I remember when we were designing the characters like they put, they had input. My daughter was like, daddy, my glasses don't look like that. I had to make sure they were happy with the characters. You and I were talking. Even though Mariah and you are separa separated, Christmas is about family first and foremost. Always. Always focused on family. We'll forever be family. We're there for our children, making them the number one priority. Understanding they're love and can have an amazing holiday. Tell us a tradition you'll do in your house.
