Update from Kristin

Hope you all are having a good weekend! So, you may have seen the post below about JoAnn's coupons. I am working there and would love to get you on the mailing list (paper or email or both). Just email me your contact info at Some of you may have signed up in the past but haven't received the ads lately...this is because you have to have your ad barcode scanned at the store to stay on. Kind of dumb, but whatever. I can sign you up again. We are actually having a contest to see you can sign up the most email me!!! Have a great day! =)

Treasure Valley Trick or Treat Spots

Wondering about safe places to take your kids trick or treating? Here is a list of a few I found:
  • The Boise Factory Outlets - 10am-8pm - Costume Contest at 6pm and a Parade of all the Kids
  • Boise Towne Square - Beginning at 6pm
  • Check Your Local Church for their Trunk or Treat Programs
  • Downtown Nampa - 3pm-5pm
  • Cabela's - During Store Hours - Go to each department for treats
  • Hyde Park in Downtown Boise - Until 8pm
  • Garden City Library - During Library Hours
  • The Canyon County Courthouse - 1115 Albany St., Caldwell - 2pm-4pm
  • Cherri's Pumpkin House, 6517 Grandview Drive, Boise - With amazing decorations and 60 hand-carved pumpkins
  • Harrison Blvd in Boise - The Ada County Highway District will have a safety station set up from 4pm-8pm and will be giving away free safety reflectors. You can request a reflector before Halloween by contacting ACHD at 387-6100 or e-mailing
  • The Morris Hill Neighborhood Association (which is actually my neighborhood) in Boise will also be passing out reflectors throughout the evening. The neighborhood encompasses the following area: Alpine->Emerald and Roosevelt->Curtis
  • Head to the Smethers home at 1896 N. Waterfall Ave. in Meridian (between Ten Mile and Linder roads in the Crystal Springs subdivision) for "Scream for Hunger," a benefit for Coats for Kids and Idaho Foodbank. Take a coat, canned good or other donation and see an ornate green Halloween display made entirely out of recyclable materials. The Smethers will pass out candy and greet guests
  • Karcher Mall - 4pm - Also has a Spooky House for the kids ($3/child or $10/family)
  • Harvest Carnival at The Bowmont Community Church in Nampa - 6:30-8:30pm - Free
  • Harvest Fest '08 - Christian Faith Center on Midland - 6pm-9pm - Free - Lots of fun and lots of treats!
As a warning - do not consume White Rabbit Creamy Candy or Koala's March Creme filled Cookies or Sherwood Brands Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins because they may contain melamine, which is a very dangerous chemical that could cause severe sickness or death.
