New Year's Eve at Knott's Berry Farm

My family and I have always spent New Year's Eve together. This year is no exception.  But this time around, we were invited to spend New Year's Eve at Knott's Berry Farm.

There will be plenty of family-friendly NYE events that will appeal to everyone in my family.  One of our stops will include Camp Snoopy Theatre to watch "Happy New Year Charlie Brown!" Charlie Brown and the Peanuts Gang will also be ringing in the New Year with a song.  I was also told that "Snoopy's Magical Night of Lights" featuring lights and holiday music from dusk to 1am is a MUST SEE!  There will also be a family friendly comedian magician, salsa and country line dancing, a trip back to the 70's with Elton John-The Early Years, and a live performance by the popular band Clueless Remix featuring DJ Resso!

Of course, we will be staying for the NYE party with a countdown with aerial fireworks display, stilt walkers, party harts and horns at midnight to welcome 2013 at Calico Square!

My husband and I have always loved Knott's Berry Farm, and now that our 3 kids are old enough to enjoy the whole park, we can't wait to go back and visit as often as we can in 2013!

New Year's Eve is not the only time to have fun at Knott's Berry Farm.  The Knott's 2013 Season Pass is only $66.99 or 6 easy payments for a limited time.  As a Season Pass holder, guests receive unlimited visits for the entire 2013 season, NO BLACKOUT DATES!, discounts at select food and merchandise locations, discounts on Halloween Haunt tickets, early ride time on select rides during the summer season, and other great Season Pass perks and surprises throughout the year.  In addition to these great perks, there will be new additions to the theme park's Boardwalk section during the summer of 2013.  There will be three attractions designed for families to stroll down a colorful California Boardwalk filled with amusements, games and fun food choices.

SpeeKee TV Spanish for Kids

Many different studies have shown that learning a second language boosts cognitive skills.  Students who studied a foreign language performed higher in reading comprehension, language mechanics and expression than those students who did not.  Studies have also shown that learning a foreign language helps combat age-related memory loss. 

Growing up, my parents made sure we learned a second language.  I currently speak 4 languages fluently.  Now that I have kids, I find myself looking for foreign language programs and classes.  My children are attending a school that teaches Spanish to 6th-8th graders.  My 8th grader is proficient and I love seeing the benefits.  I want my 8 and 5 year old kids to start learning earlier, so I've been looking for a Spanish program for them.  I think I've found one - Speekee TV Spanish for Kids.
