#HowDoYouHoliday at Westfield

It’s that time of year again…Santa has arrived at Westfield shopping centers!

I brought the whole family last weekend to visit Santa, decorate cookies, create ornaments, and even see Santa’s reindeer! This was kind of a big deal because apparently Reindeer for rent are few and far between. Who knew?! The girls had a blast, Rock had his first encounter with Santa, and I got some great photos! (Total mom win!)

Last year we made an attempt to see Santa and it didn’t go well. Penelope was terrified of the big jolly man and the line was outragously long! This year couldn’t have gone any better than it did! Although the line was still long, there were two different Storytime stops. Staff members read books to the kids and the kids didn’t completely lose their minds of bordeom during the wait! Another win!

When it was our turn, Penelope saw Mrs. Claus first and went right up to her! Sophia and Rock got to sit on Santa’s lap, while Penelope felt more comfortable with Mrs. Claus. This is one of my favorite things about Westfield Brandon’s Santa pictures!


The staff helping out with the Santa pictures were awesome! They had jingle bells and big smiles on their faces trying to get the perfect Santa picture for me. I’m so thankful for them! You can visit Westfield and have photos taken now until Christmas Eve.

Westfield is really cranking up the holiday spirit this year with several events throughout the month of December to put you and your family (even the dog!) in the Christmas spirit.
Hound for the Holidays is coming up on December 11th from 6:30pm-8:30pm. Bring your furry family friends for a special night with Santa. The first 50 pet parents receive a stocking stuffed with treats for their beloved family member.
Visit Westfield.com/holiday for everything from Holiday gift guides to details on how to skip the Santa line!

Merry Christmas! From these precious ones!
