It's Christmastime: Fun Activities for you fam!

December is my most favorite month.
Not only were both of my children born this month,
but there are so many wonderful things
going on in the community.

I wanted to share a few of the awesome events
going on in the OC this weekend.

I had no idea how close to me Heritage Hill was to me
until I attended an event preview last night.

It is such a little treasure hidden away in Lake Forest.
The grounds and buildings and charming and
all the Christmas lights make it so charming and inviting.

The kids were excited to take the tour and find out all about the Victorian Christmas.

As a special treat for the bloggers and their families
attending the preview they had two yummy food trucks -
Taco Maria and The Tailgate Truck.

My favorite was Meringue Bake Shop.
The kids inhaled TWO Push Cakes each!
(thanks Kristin)
And HELLO eggnog cupcake!

The kids got to make Victorian crackers to pop open on Christmas Eve.
They were so fun and the Parks staff was amazing to work with.

You definitely need to visit Heritage Hill during the Holidays
if you haven't been before and go back if you've already been.

I fell in love with the schoolhouse.
I wish schools were cute like this these days.

The Victorian Christmas celebration will take place
Saturday, Dec. 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m
There will be handicraft vendors, festive holiday entertainment, free children's crafts, living history demonstrations, historical exhibits, tours through the decorated, historic buildings and visits with Santa Claus.
It's not to be missed!!!

Another fun event is the 20th Annual Community Christmas Celebration.
I took JT to this a few years ago and it was wonderful!
There are Creches from around the world, activities for the kids,
and wonderful music from local groups.
It's this weekend Dec 2-4 - check the website for details.

The Living Nativity in Rancho Santa Margarita.
I've never been to this event, but it looks awesome.
You can find all the details about it HERE.

Don't forget about the Little Penelope Lane open house tonight!
