How many of you have heard of Northwest Santa? Northwest Santa is the Santa that makes house calls for FREE. How cool is that? I just heard about this traveling St Nick and I am super excited about it. Northwest Santa is run and funded by volunteers and has been making personal visits in the Puget Sound since 2009.  Santa will be making his stops on December 20th-24th in Puyallup, Orting, Sumne, Bonney Lake, and JBLM for children 10 and under OR with special needs of any age to a different set of zip codes. The first year they did this they were only able to visit 3 zip codes and this year they will be visiting 11 zip codes and JBLM. The number of homes they are able to stop at each night will depend on the number of volunteers they have.

As we enter into the busy holiday season, I’d like to encourage everyone to make this years Thanksgiving Holiday about giving thanks for all that you have, remembering those families around us that are not as fortunate and to find different ways to give what you can to help these families in need. It is so easy to get caught up with our busy lives and our own wants and needs, I am very guilty of this myself, but this year I’d like to show my children what the holiday season should really be about and what if feels like and what it looks like to give to others.

 Ask around or go online, look around for opportunities to give back to the families in your community with your time and/or donations. If possible consider involving the whole family; maybe find

OH...I am so excited!! I know it is a little early to start talking about Christmas, BUT I just heard that the fundraising goal for the new North Pole at the Washington State Fairgrounds (The Puyallup Fair Grounds) has successfully been funded, so this year when you plan for your Santa photos you will no longer have to wait in those long, never ending lines. Instead you can call ahead and make reservations for your Santa pictures. It will be a whole new concept in the Puyallup area, thought up by Images and Events whom have been taking Santa pictures at the South Hill Mall for the last 6 years. The lines have gotten so long that they felt they haven’t been able to spend the quality time with each child that they want to. They have said that they want to

It Will Always Be The Puyallup Fair to Me

Thursday, September 11th, 2014 at 6:35pm. 28 Views, 0 Comments.

I will probably always call it the Puyallup Fair, and I will probably always have that cute little Puyallup Fair jingle in my head every time I think of the fair; You can do it at a trot, You can do it at a gallop, You can do it real slow so your heart won’t palpitate….do the Puyallup. The name has changed but the Washington State Fair remains the same in every other way. It is exactly how I remember it from my childhood days. What good memories with my family when I was a child and now I get to keep the tradition alive with my own littles. My dad used to pull us out of school and take us every year and it was always a special treat for our family. These days all the kids in the Puyallup School District have a day especially set aside for them to go and
