Review You think you get the "bah, humbugs" at Christmas time? In "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause," Santa feels worse than you ever could. Scott Calvin (played by Tim Allen) is an ordinary guy who became Santa Claus in the first movie in the "Santa Clause" series. Christmastime is especially hard for Santa this year. Baby Claus is due any time, and holding his family together while preparing for Christmas is tough. While Santa tries to handle both, his jealous competitor, Jack Frost, plots to replace the big guy in the red coat.

They came Sunday night with loved ones in tow, many of whom were wearing accessories like sparkling red dresses and stocking caps. The cherished ones tugged and scampered about, apparently excited over the chance to see Santa Claus. But these Santa visitors were not children, they were felines and canines. The seventh annual Pet Night with Santa at Valley Mall gave people a chance to have their furry companions photographed with Santa. A line of people and their pets wrapped around a center area at the mall where Santa Claus sat. Once they arrived at a gate to have pictures taken, some sat with their pets along with Santa, while others preferred to only to have Santa and their pet in the picture.
