Christmas is a delightful time of year. There are so many joyous things to do, it’s hard to choose just one. One of my family’s favorite traditions is to visit Santa Claus at the mall. This year was especially memorable, we got to visit HGTV Santa HQ at the Los Cerritos Center for the second year in a row. It was not only fun for the kids, but the adults too. Of course we took our traditional photo-op with Santa Claus, but before we did, we explored the entire North Pole from top to bottom.
Naughty or Nice O’Meter
First, my kids jumped onto the Naughty or Nice Meter. They stood in front of the interactive board and challenged each other to see who could make it onto Santa’s nice list this season. Take a look at how much my son has grown from Christmas 2017 to Christmas 2018. Crazy, huh!
Surprisingly, both Field Trip Girl and Field Trip Boy were labeled “nice” according to the meter. Yet, I wonder if their dad would agree! After my kids got off the meter, I put my new puppy named Field Trip Dog on the scale and she too was deemed to be nice. Hmm…I need to double check that meter the next time I’m at the mall!
