Santa comes to town and a trip to Sleepy Hollow

Merry Christmas! One thing I love about this city is that every December, volunteers from the Redondo Beach Police Department and Fire Department drive down every single street in the city giving every kid a visit with Santa.

Waiting for the Candlelight Processional 2019 2019-12-08

It's the first full weekend of December, so it's time for Disneyland to host its annual Candlelight Processional!
While Theresa and I had been annual pass holders since 2002, Candlelight wasn't a published event and we hadn't heard of it before. It was in 2008 when we met Ruston for the very first time at Jacob's birthday party that he told us a little bit more about it. Ruston gave us a bit of the history, plus told us that he'd be performing. We went to see him that year (and nearly every year since) and soon we all became good friends.

National Brownie Day - December 8th

Today is National Brownie Day! Next to cookies, brownies might just be the next best dessert. Ian and Alli helped Theresa make a batch. When it was National Cookie Day we made sure to read "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie". Now that it's Brownie Day, they made sure to find "If You Give a Mouse a Brownie".

I love the edges. The kids like the soft center. Thanks Theresa for making it with them today!

National Cotton Candy Day - December 7th

Today is National Cotton Candy Day! I've been hanging on to this cereal since the summer just for today. Cotton Candy, aka Fairy Floss and Candy Floss, was invented by a dentist back in 1897.

I love cotton candy. When I heard there was a new flavor of Captain Crunch coming out, it was definitely going to get some. The stores nearby didn't have any in stock (that shouldn't be a surprise at this point) so I had Walmart ship me a box.
