Knott's Berry Farm, er, Knott's Merry Farm -- as the theme park is called through Jan. 1 -- hosted a special blogger day, which also happened to be CC's birthday. And not only did CC get the chance to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, she also got her picture taken with a very special "Peanut," Santa Snoopy.
Knott's decks out the park in all things Christmas and wintry over the holidays. From the Christmas Crafts Fair, which offers hand-painted glass and embroidery in the old-fashioned village setting, to Elf Mountain, and a Peanuts' holiday parade, the park is more than ready to bring a winter wonderland to the kiddos.
In addition to exploring the park, we rode a few rides and caught a live performance of "The Gift of the Magi," a story about holiday love and sacrifice based on the short story by O. Henry. The play was funny, full of music and short enough to keep children's attention.
CC even got a pic with the cast after the show.
While we didn't have a chance to check out the parade or the "It's Christmas, Snoopy!" ice-skating show -- it was, after all, CC's birthday, and we had a lot planned for the day -- she did have the opportunity to sip hot chocolate while decorating cookies.
Santa and Mrs. Claus joined in the fun, too.
