Harry Potter Magical Ball with Barnes & Noble










December 9th at 7pm in Fresno, California and around the nation Barnes & Noble is hosting a Harry Potter Magical Ball. You are invited to come dressed as your favorite character and enjoy music, dancing, giveaways, and activities. I've attended other release parties for Harry Potter in the past and they are well organized and they have crafts. The release party for The Cursed Child included a sorting and that was really fun. They gave us buttons and magnets according to our houses. (For you curiosity, we have two ravenclaws and two gryffindors.)

Christmas Tree Lane

Christmas Tree Lane is located in Fresno, California, and is its 94th year. Located in Old Fig Garden, you can travel down Van Ness Avenue starts at Shields and goes to Shaw, about two miles. 
The final walking night is December 13, 2016, from 6pm-10pm. I suggest if you want to avoid the crowds, get started right at 6pm. 
When its comes to little kids, I would suggest having a stroller or wagon for anyone four and under because between the cold, crowds, and distance they will slow them down quickly-mittens, gloves, scarves, blankets are needed. I like to park on a side street in the middle (like Holland) and walk to Shaw and back when I'm with little ones.
Bus rides during the walking nights are offered by Tree Fresno. Contact them at 559-221-5556.
There are some vendors who sell light up toys (so bring cash if you are interested) and glow sticks are pretty popular. Sometimes you will get lucky and someone will be selling hot chocolate. Santa, school choirs and more can be seen on the walking nights. (December 3rd was the last one).
Driving times: 6pm-10pm on Sunday through Thursday 
                       6pm-11pm on Friday and Saturday. 

When you drive there is a radio station committed to Christmas Tree Lane that plays Christmas music. You can also spot all of Santa's reindeer en route. Donations are accepted in two locations to help with the energy costs that come with the Christmas lights. 
Christmas Tree Lane is a free event and a holiday tradition for anyone in the Fresno, Clovis and surrounding areas. It remains open through Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas!


The Christmas Alternative- Better than the Gift Card

A special thank you to Lynndee Theson for this excellent guest post.

My name is Sarah Gonzales and I fully endorse this message.

Top gift ideas for the hard-to-shop-for people in your life.

The holiday season is upon us.  Some say it’s the most wonderful time of the year.  For me it is the most stressful time of the year.  That isn’t to say I don’t love the holidays, I am just one of millions of people who go out shopping for gifts each year and walk out of a store with more gifts for myself than the people on my list.  I know what I want.  Not when I am asked, when I see it in the store.  It’s a vicious cycle, when asked what would you like for Christmas the answer is “I don’t know”.  As soon as I step into Target though, I see all kinds of things I want.  This year, when making wish lists for my family I noticed instead of actual gifts, wish lists were filled with gift cards.  So I thought, there has to be something I can buy my family that is more personal than a gift card or money.  I came to a middle ground.  They aren’t really wrap it up and put a box under the tree gifts but they aren’t gift cards either.
Memberships
Memberships can make the best gifts.  Unlike some presents, a membership lasts an entire year.  This is my list of suggested memberships to give as a gift this year.




  • Zoo membership
    • Zoo memberships are great for families with kids.  My zoo membership not only gets two adults and all dependent age children admission into the zoo, I also get a discount at the gift shop and snack bars.  During special events members get special pricing as well.  Different Zoo’s may have more or less benefits so be sure to look into the zoo closest to you to find out what if offered.  Memberships are good for 1 year.  

  • AAA membership
    • You don’t have to be insured with AAA to have a AAA membership.  Membership benefits include roadside service, discounts at many hotels, restaurants, and car repair places, and a lot of AAA locations offer some DMV services.  There are three different levels of membership with the classic one costing $56 a year.  Classic membership comes with 5 miles of free towing, free gas delivery, and $60 car locksmith reimbursement.  This is a nice gift for anyone who drives.  Find out more about a AAA membership here.

  • Rei membership
    • For a one time fee of $20 an REI membership can be purchased.  This is the gift that really does keep giving.  Each year, members get a 10% back member divided on purchases made at REI throughout the year.  The divided is only good at REI but there are so many things to buy that it won’t be hard to pick something.  Other membership benefits include access to REI garage sale and member only specials.  Don’t know what REI is?  Check it out here.

  • Amazon Prime membership
    • I love amazon.  That is why I am a prime member.  A prime membership get you free two day shipping on many products as well as access to thousands of movies and TV shows through prime video.  At $99 at year that is less than $10 a month making it less than Netflix with many of the same programs and other added benefits.  Prime members can also borrow a book each month from the KIndle Owners Lending Library.  Interested in Prime?  Get more info here.

Wholesale Club memberships
Wholesale clubs are popular for small businesses and large families.  They allow customers to shop for everything from bulk food and beverages to furniture and electronics.  Memberships need to be renewed yearly so these can make great gifts year after year.

  • Costco membership
    • For $55 you can gift a gift a Costco membership good for a year.  It will allow the recipient to shop at Costco and get amazing deals on bulk items.  Costco has a pharmacy, optical department, tire shop, and a snack bar.  On top of all that, Costco has a very generous return policy.  Interested in a Costco membership for you or someone else?  Learn more here.

  • Sam’s Club membership
    • Sam’s Club is also a wholesale warehouse.  A basic membership is $45 and allows the member to shop in Sam’s Club and save lots of money by buying items in bulk.  Sam’s Club has an optical department, battery and tire department, and instant savings on products.  Find out more about Sam’s Club membership here.

Subscriptions
These days there are subscriptions for everything.  Some subscriptions allow subscribers to pay monthly for a service or product while others can be paid for a set amount of time like 3 months, 6 months, or a year.  Subscriptions are a perfect gift for anyone.  You just have to find the right subscription.  Here are some of my favorites.

  • Netflix
    • Netflix is a subscription service that streams many TV show, movies, and original content.  Plans start at $7.99 per month.  This can be a great way to give someone something you know they will use.  Netflix makes it easy for current subscribers to apply a gift code to their account so they will not be charged until the gift code has been used.  Buy a netflix gift card at most local retailers.

  • Hulu
    • Hulu allows subscribers to watch current episodes of TV shows the same week it is airded on television.  Hulu also has exclusive and original shows as well as some movies.  Hulu plans start at $7.99 with commercials or for $11.99 subscribers can watch Hulu without commercials.  Hulu gift cards can be purchased at many local retailers including Target, Best Buy, and Walgreens.  Just add the gift code to an account and don’t pay again until all the gift code has been used.

  • Magazine
    • Magazine subscriptions are a nice option since there are so many to chose from.  From current events, fashion, puzzles, entertainment, news, sports, cars, kids, parenting, and home you are sure to find something for everyone.
 
  • Newspaper
    • By choosing local newspapers you can get up to date news daily or choose to only get the paper on weekends or just Sunday.  Most Sunday papers will have ads and coupons.  This is an ideal gift for any couponers you may know.

  • Box subscriptions
    • Give someone a box subscription and they will receive a box in the mail with whatever you pick.   From nail polish and makeup to toys and food,  the possibilities are endless as more and more companies are using box subscriptions to create interest in their products.


Seasonal Passes

  • Waterpark season pass
    • This can be such an awesome gift for the summer.  Waterparks have lots of waterslides, a tide pool, a kids water play area, and snack bars.  They are great places to go for a few hours a day during the summer when it is really hot and stay active.  Passes are sold per person so it get expensive for large families.  This is a nice gift for parents to buy for their own kids.  

  • Ski Resort season pass
    • This is a great gift for people who like to ski or snowboard.  This is also one of the most expensive gifts on my list.  I’m sure lots of people would love a ski resort season pass but it is not in everyone's budget.


National Park Pass
  • American the Beautiful Pass
Passes for National Parks make great gifts especially for people who are active.  The America the Beautiful pass is good for over 2,000 national parks and federal recreation areas throughout the United States including the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Death Valley, and Yellowstone.  These passes can be purchased for $80 and cover entrance fees for a year.  To give you an idea of the value of the America the Beautiful pass, a seven day pass to get into Yosemite is $30.  For people that plan on going more than 3 times a year, this really pays off.  Plus is can be used for lots of other places.  Get more information at https://store.usgs.gov/pass/PassIssuanceList.pdf.


Don’t stress this holiday season about gifts.  Pick one of the useful gifts from this list and make gift giving easy this year.  Do you have a favorite gift to give or get?  Don’t hold out, share your thoughts.

Clovis Children's Electric Christmas Parade

If you have been to the Clovis Children's Electric Christmas Parade you know it is very cold, but has fun lit-up floats. The parade is from 6:30pm-8:30pm on December 3rd. 


I found that when I went a while back with toddlers-I was unprepared. It was colder than I expected and we couldn't see well because it was surprisingly crowded. Bring gloves, scarves, and blankets in addition to dressing warm. If you are in it for the long haul, come early and camp out your spot. Some people begin camping in the morning, but 4pm-4:30pm is probably early enough.

Walking vendors often sell light up toys and headbands to help you join in the festivity.

This is a free event sponsored by the Old Town Clovis Kiwanis

Chosen Frozen Yogurt and Low Sensory Meeting with Santa


Direct from the Simpletix Chosen Frozen Yogurt Event description:

A visit to Santa at the local mall is a time-honored tradition for most families.  However, if your child has sensory issues or special needs of any kind, you know that the noise, lights, long lines, and crowds, make for a stressful outing.

The 1 hour time slots are by reservation only and cost just $5 per family including a small cup of frozen yogurt for everyone! We will eliminate crowds, silence the music, lessen the choices, and increase the staffing to ensure a pleasant experience.  Story time, a simple craft, and a take-your-own photo opportunity will also be provided.

Get your Chosen Frozen Yogurt Tickets- $5 per family at simpletix.com

Chosen Frozen Yogurt is located on Chestnut near Shepherd

FAMily Day- Fresno Art Museum

Sunday, December 11, 2016, is last Fresno Art Museum FAMily Day of the year.

The event is from 11am-4pm
Santa Claus will be there from 12pm-2pm, along with art projects, cookies, music, and more.

If you have a third grader in Fresno Unified School District, they are likely to have a piece of artwork in the student exhibition ART OF THE WORLD. (Keep in mind most of the pieces are in binders-so don't make this the only reason you come.)

Naturally, the museum is free of admission during the event, so it's a good time to get your kids in for free, especially if you have a big family. It will be crowded, so just mentally prepare for that. It's a great event and worth it.

Service Heals the Heart

I knew this week would be hard on me regardless of the election results, but I found it affected me more than I expected. I know I want to DO to help my community.

Looking for a way to give back to your community this Thanksgiving? Here are a few websites that can link you to non-profits that would love your help. Keep in mind, the earlier you contact each organization the smoother everything will go. If you run out of time to organize volunteer hours, consider making something you can donate. If you have an animal love consider the Zoo or an animal shelter- keep your (or your child's) interests in mind, but don't be afraid to push your comfort zone and come away with all the feels. Love is Service.

Sickies in the Classroom

Have you received your truancy letter?

I have, not for all the kids yet, but I'm bound to. California has a law that declares your child a truant if they miss three days unexcused and six days excused of school.

This is a piece of the pretty letter you get for the First Notification of Truancy

EC Section 48260.5: Upon a pupil's initial classification as a truant, the school district shall notify the pupil's parent or guardian, by using the most cost-effective method possible, which may include electronic mail or a telephone call:
(a) That the pupil is a truant.
(b) That the parent or guardian is obligated to compel the attendance of the pupil at school.
(c) That parents or guardians who fail to meet this obligation may be guilty of an infraction and subject to prosecution pursuant to Article 6 (commencing with Section 48290) of Chapter 2 of Part 27.
(d) That alternative educational programs are available in the district.
(e) That the parent or guardian has the right to meet with appropriate school personnel to discuss solutions to the pupil's truancy.
(f) That the pupil may be subject to prosecution under Section 48264.
(g) That the pupil may be subject to suspension, restriction, or delay of the pupil's driving privilege pursuant to Section 13202.7 of the Vehicle Code.
(h) That it is recommended the parent or guardian accompany the pupil to school and attend classes with the pupil for one day.

You realize this threatening letter gets sent to Kindergarteners. Those rebels. When? When they miss three days- unexcused or six days excused (out sick/doctors appointments).

Granted I have a neighbor whose child was absent or late so often she was held back a year, poor girl, it wasn't her fault at all. This is a case where the school should attempt to intervene.

But truancy is not why I'm posting today.

I met a mother today who worked at the school that was convincing her child to eat up her school breakfast so she could get to class. The poor pale kid was sucking down her milk dutifully and shuffled to class 15 minutes late. The working mother mentioned that she threw up last night.
Last night.

There is a school policy that if you child has vomited or had a fever in the last 24 hours you do not allow them to go to school. I can only imagined either this mother is worried about attendance and possibly truancy, or she uses school as a babysitter or both. Maybe she doesn't know the policy. I forgive her because I understand, but I will be a sad panda when my family is praying to the porcelain gods.

Good heavens, that poor kid's face is stuck in my mind. I'll find out soon, when I pick up my son if she did toss cookies in the classroom. So now 20+ kids are most likely going to have the stomach flu in the next week.
Hoof and mouth hasn't made it to our home yet, but I know it's at my son's elementary school.

Come on village. Take care of your kids. Bare minimum keep the fever, diarrhea, and vomit home. These school kids have siblings, some of which are tiny babies.
Please consider how your actions affect others. Screw the truancy letter.
Don't let the man scare you into sending your sickies to school when they should be home so they can get better.
T4 is home with a fever today.

5 Things I've Learned Adulting

People will ask me, How do you do it?

My answer is, You rise to the occasion.

It's true. When I was in high school I pretty much never imagined what my life would be like past this point- I couldn't even conceive it. I planned on getting an education with the hopes of hanging my diploma on the wall in order to be a mother. I wanted to be in a position to become a teacher if the day came when I must work, but the plan was to get married, have children, and eventually, one day, become the greatest grandma ever and change the world for the better. I've learned a few things adulting and this is my short list:

1. When an opportunity presents itself, take it. The best advice I ever received was while I was a lifeguard working at Wild Water Adventures. While working ember watch during an Independence Day firework show, I listened to the words of a 25 year old EMT who explained, When an opportunity presents itself, take it. Sounds simple enough, but to me, at 17, those words were profound.

2. I believe in the capacity of people to do good.
About six months after my talk on the top of the Sidewinder, I began the journey to become a foreign exchange student. Not only did I learn German, and make life long friends, but the main thing I took away from my year in Europe was the world is a big, diverse, beautiful place, and people should not be swift to judge or criticize. I grew up believing many things were black and white (which is typical of most children) and I came to learn that although people make some bad choices it doesn't necessarily mean they are bad people. I believe in the capacity of people to do good.

3. Be resourceful and share what you learn to improve others lives. Life skills are taught. Whether by observation or direct instruction, we are complex social creatures expected to learn a myriad of skills ranging from proper etiquette to cooking rice. Before Youtube, these skills were expected to be learned in the home and young people everywhere are practically starving due to their lack of skills and you have this (in the best case scenario) unintentionally entitled generation who expect their parents to register them for college and chauffeur them back and forth. Use your brain. Find someone to teach you. Keep learning. READ. Be resourceful and creative. To be fair- I'm close to the can't cook side of things- but I can teach you how to use Wordpress, ride a horse, and change the oil in your car.

4. Don't be afraid of money. I grew up thoroughly middle class and for the longest time I felt like DOOM was around the corner. If I couldn't pay my bills it was the END of the world. Now I know, it's not the end of the world. There are far worse things. I have a healthy family and loyal and loving husband and friends who care about me. If I can't pay Verizon, I can suspend that account. PGE can give me their notices. I'll live. The only suckers I pay on time are the credit card companies and my student loans- because if I don't it will really be hell to pay, but only financially, again, real hell, much worse. If your bills are getting out of control, call the companies they will work with you and consider what is truly a want and what are needs. Be wise, but don't let fear and anxiety rule you. Money comes and goes. You might be one top of the world one day and the bottom the next, your relationships are what matters most.

5. Have courage and be kind. Borrowing from Cinderella here, but it is true. Be independent. Be considerate. Be straightforward and honest. Not only is this important in every day life, but professionally. Be one of the shepherds and protect those with whom you work; don't be one of the wolves. We are human beings capable of tremendous compassion and terrible cruelty and some teenage girls are capable of both within the same day. Have integrity. Chose to be better each day and do service. Service will help you to love others and yourself.


Save Mart First and Bullard Clearance

I know it's an unusual place to look for clearance, but Save Mart on First and Bullard has baby food packets for 25 cents a piece. They keep a shopping cart in the back left (Northeast) corner of the store. It's got some Christmas clearance piled on top, but for baby food that is usually $1-$2, it's worth the dig. Also always check the isle near the pharmacy that has the knick knacks next to the Promo isle. It has all sorts of clearance. I got these necklaces 80 cents a piece for a block party Mardi Gras parade I'm going to, happy hunting!
