Santa's Village!!!

Every year we take our family down to San Diego to see the Christmas lights and a few years ago my Mom discovered this amazing house in Poway which they call Santa's Village! It's this couple who owns the Family Fun Centers in San Diego, and they totally transform their whole house and front & back yard into a winter wonderland!! We LOVE going, it's now become a tradition for us.They have all kinds of huge blow up christmas characters that are lit up in their front yard...I know, I know, that last phrase actually sounded like we were going to a white trash house but it was done with class, I promise.Here we all are trying to get everyone in this group pix, which can be very hard when you have 10 kids who want to all run wild!!This is another one of their amazing decorations that is about as big as a 2 story house!! This pix doesn't do it justice, seriously. They also provide hot cocoa, apple cider and cookies and people who donate their time to work there! Merrick with her cousins Maddie and Catelyn.One of the rooms that were transformed.My cute Mom and Dad.This is basically their living room.Another amazing perk they do here is let each child pick out a toy!! And they have about 20 different bins that are set up with all kinds of toys to choose from!! Seriously..who are these people?? Soo generous!!We know what Cami went for...Cute Little Princess!!





This is what their backyard looks like...you can't see from the pix, but they have a snow machine out there so the snow will fall when you walk through the cute little village.


Me with my sister's Liz and Heather.








And of course Santa and Mrs Clause were there waiting to take the traditional "santa" pix with all of the kids!! Thanks you Santa's Village for a Great time!! See you next year!!

What a fun place for kids and adults. Obviously people with too much money. What a great tradition for families.
