Living in the Inland Empire we tend to travel to Orange County or LA to attend “special events”, so when I heard that Victoria Gardens was going to be the home for the Dreamworks Adventure to Santa I was thrilled beyond belief. I knew that this was a unique holiday experience that my family could not miss. Last weekend I had the opportunity to take my 5 year old daughter and her friends, ages 5 and 9 to see Santa. Instead of the long standing tradition of visiting Santa at local malls this FREE interactive Santa adventure takes you on a 15 minute unforgettable journey to the North Pole to find Santa, with Shrek and his friends leading the way. Say goodbye to standing in the traditional mall lines, families are required to make a reservation to see Santa and enjoy this special experience.

Once we hit the month of November, it’s time time to start thinking about our annual holiday cards we send off to family and friends. This year, I’ve already picked out coordinating outfits for the kiddos, but before I shoot the pictures, I wanted to check out the card options for setting, style and photography ideas. I’ve noticed a few friends have been sharing their love for Minted holiday cards via social media channels, which prompted me to take a peek myself.

Minted has an amazing selection of beautiful cards for all occasions. Their holiday and Christmas card selection is just incredible. So many different styles, themes, layouts and graphics, I ended up really liking a couple of different ones.

The holidays are here and one place I love to hit up during the season is Knott’s Merry Farm.  As far back as I can remember, my favorite place to shop for unique holiday gifts is at their Christmas Crafts Fair in Ghost Town.
