Coney's and Kisses!

Oh happy day!!! Coney's is now in American Fork! I was invited to come to the Coney's Grand Opening on Saturday November 13! It was so fun to be able to go and congratulate such a wonderful company and welcome them into the city! If you've never been to Coney's you should diffidently go, they have AMAZING frozen custard and everyday they have a different flavor! They also serve delicious gourmet hot dogs and hamburgers! Along with the amazing food I also made a cute little friend while I was there! This cute little in the pictures was no stranger and decided to give me a few little kisses on the cheek while we were taking pictures! after that he wanted me to hold him and look how cute he is.....I just couldn't resist the invitation!

Veterans Memorial

Growing up I never realized how special the 11 of November was, until this year. I was really lucky to be able to attend the "Freedom is not Free" memorial for the Veterans at the Tabernacle last Thursday. What an amazing ceremony it was. We were lucky to hear from two students who spoke about the cost of freedom, and we were lucky to hear from Spencer Cannon who is such an incredible man and gave a phenomenal speech. After the speakers we got to hear from the American Fork Chamber Orchestra. I have always had a deep love for music, and the Orchestra brought tears to my eyes with each song they played. 
 After that they read the names of those in our city who lost their lives in service, so that we could live the glorious lives that we live every day, followed by a wreath hug in their honor. I have never felt so many mixed emotions than I felt while attending this amazing ceremony. I felt guilt for the lives lost in order for me to have the freedoms that I have today, I felt lucky that there were people out there who love me enough in order to serve their country, and I felt an excessive amount of sadness for those sons and daughters, wives and husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends, and mom's and dad's that have loved ones serving this wonderful country. To those men and women that are serving, who have served, or who are planning on serving, thank you for making this world a better place.....I don't know what we would do without you.

On Thursday night my family decided to pack everyone up and head over to Cornbellys for some family fun. While we were there I got to ride the mechanical bull for free :) which was pretty fun and shoot a giant pumpkin shooter they  also have some fun corn mazes and a haunted lizard and corn maze if you are brave enough to go through them....I chickened out and didn't go through the haunted corn maze...although my five year old brother did! So even though Cornbellys is no longer open for the season, make sure to mark a day on your calendars for some good ol' family bonding time at Cornbellys :)

Downtown Trick-Or-Treat!

I love Halloween!! It is so fun to be able to dress up like something for the night and get enough candy to last you a whole year! If you aren't familiar with the downtown trick-or-treat that American Fork does it's fantastic! They get businesses that are on Main Street in American Fork to pass out candy to little trick-or-treaters. It's a great way to promote your business and also to support your community! I got to be at the start of the route, which started at the senior citizen center! It was so fun to see everyones costumes they were all so creative! Well around  4 o'clock we did costume judging and I was lucky to be apart of that! There were the COOLEST costumes.....from Pumpkin Princesses to Cereal Killers I had the best time! 
My cute brothers and sister came and saw me :)
