Santa HQ is Returning!

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!

Santa with our dogs in 2017. @The Joyous Living
Remember how much fun my friend A and I had both with our dogs in November 2017 and just ourselves in November 2016 with Santa? 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? You're never too old to meet up with Santa.
