Santa's House


The last several years it has been our tradition to take the kids to the Huish house in Poway for a visit! this is a house like no other. They literally move their stuff to a storage unit so that they can display all of their Christmas decorations. The people come in droves to get a picture with Santa, see fake snow, eat cookies and enjoy hot chocolate - my kids favorite part has always been the picking out of one toy. Well, sad to say, this is the last year that they will be hosting this party.
I am so upset about that!
My sisters came down and we all went over
to Santa's House one final time.



The kids loved the free hot chocolate and cookies!


We also had fun seeing the lights lit up on some of the homes!
{those electric bills must be crazy!}

Hi Heather,
this is aunt Myrna. We are coming to San Diego on the 29th of December and will be meeting your Dad and Mom at a park somewhere as we thought it was too many people for their house. anyway, I hope you can make it. We are meeting them for Lunch for a couple of hours. There will be alot of my kids there and all the grandkids. i would love to see you and your family, but Bob said it wasn't your year. He didn't know if you could come or not? How about Elizabeth? How far does she live from your parents. Anyway, if you canv fit that in, it would be great. I would love to see all your kids!
Write me at mpetersen@apfc.com and maybe we could surprise your parents.
Love you
Aunt Myrna

Hey why did we not know of this place when we lived there??? Clearly I was not "in" with the "in" crowd!
We miss going to PQ and walking around "Candy Cane Lane"
Sweet memories.

Hi there...I am wondering if Santa's house will be open to families this weekend? I brought my family there three years ago with our first child and now there's 3 of them. Just wondering...Carlo

Just saw this post about the Santa house having it's last year in "09" I was looking to see if they changed the hours of operation because we planned on doing our annual visit tomorrow. However I saw a post on youtube of the Huish house as of Dec 14 2010. So I'm wondering if you know if they decided to keep doing it or if it's really not going on this year.
