Santa is Coming!!!!

Yep, it's that time of year. Santa is heading down from the North Pole to say hi to all the good little children in the Conejo Valley and he's even taking time to see the good dogs and cats too!
Remember how much fun my friend A and I had last November (a year ago today in fact) with Santa who handed out medical wisdom when I told him I wanted good health for Christmas? Hehe. Well, he is coming back! And so is the awesome high tech HGTV Santa HQ from last year that was a hit with kids and adults alike featuring the Naughty or Nice Meter and the Control Center?

Santa lands at the Thousand Oaks' Oaks Mall on November 10th for Grandparents' Night (5pm-8pm) and a special "Santa's Arrival" celebration on November 11th from 10am-12pm.

But not to be forgotten are our favorite furry friends and loved ones! As with last year, Santa will be inviting pets to visit on 4 Wednesdays from 5pm-8pm.
November 15 || November 29 || December 6 || December 13
Remember that these nights there will also be children and families in attendance eager to see Santa too. So stay considerate of your pets' needs and the needs and hustle bustle around you of the shoppers and fellow Santa fans. Also the best way inside for your pets will be through the parking structure entrance near the food court.

Since last year I had the pleasure of bringing you a review of Santa HQ from an adult's POV, I am excited to share that A and I will be back on 11/15 but this time with our dogs - Hastings Alyosha and Tigo (the little guy had a name change)!! Look for our photos and their review in a couple weeks' time!!
