Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Coco Austin and her family are gearing up for the holiday season.
The 38-year-old television personality had a "Santa's lil helper" in Chanel, her daughter with husband Ice-T, while decorating her Christmas tree Monday.
Austin shared photos on Instagram of herself and Chanel completing the holiday tradition. The pair will celebrate Thanksgiving with Ice-T and other family Thursday before ringing in Chanel's second birthday Nov. 28.
"Ice caught Santa's Lil helper in action," Austin captioned the slideshow.
"Its a tradition that I put up my tree a week before Thanksgiving.. A lot of family is coming into town and I want my house to very festive," she explained.
Austin and Ice-T, who married in 2002, welcomed Chanel in 2015. The couple brought their daughter to Disneyland for the first time in August after throwing her a Minnie Mouse-themed first birthday party last year.
"The party planner had asked us, 'What is her favorite cartoon?' and I was like, 'Pretty much anything Mickey or Minnie. She just brightens her face up every time she sees them,'" Austin told E! News at the time.
Austin didn't share a guest list for Thanksgiving, but is close to her sister, Kristy Austin, a yoga instructor. She shared a photo this month of herself and Kristy performing an acroyoga pose in class.
