When Mariah Carey shared an image with her fans the night before Thanksgiving via Twitter, and alluded to the fact that she might soon be in her kitchen making pecan pie, fans no doubt raised their eyebrows–either in delight or grave concern. The photo shows her with hubby Nick Cannon and “dem babies,” as Cannon lovingly refers to his children, twins Monroe and Moroccan. The happy family is cuddled together in their kitchen with a big bowl of pecans.
Carey even said she and the family were preparing to make a pecan pie.
“It’s going down in this kitchen! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!” Nick Cannon posted, along with an Intsagram photo of a beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece (did Mariah make that, too?) “Up late, getting ready for Thanksgiving @MariahCarey and Dem Babies!”
Think again if you believe the former American Idol judge was about to get her kitchen groove on. That didn’t happen and likely wasn’t even a remote consideration. That didn’t put a crimp in the family’s holiday happiness, however. And they seemed eager to let people know this, too. Of course the posting of all this family love comes on the heels of a rumor that the couple has been ‘living separate lives,” so it’s possible they were concerned about posting a wholesome family image.
On Thanksgiving afternoon, however, Cannon questioned the origin of the Thanksgiving holiday, and that got Twitter fans talking. His tweet was retweeted almost 300 times.
How do I explain to my kids that the first Thanksgiving was really just a meal before the Europeans jacked the Natives for their land?

What kind of conversation might you have around your dining room table if presented with Nick Cannon’s tweet as conversation fodder?
Alas it appears (with appear being the key word here) like all is well with Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, even though the pecan pie they had for dessert on Thanksgiving was probably made by an in-house chef or caterer. What matters is that the family is together–and at least as far as Instagram and Twitter are concerned–they are.
