Braegger Reunion Sept.22, 2012
Even though I had already been home in September once I was able to go back. I got a REALLY good deal on airfare so I went home for the weekend. It was so great to be able to be there. I flew in on Friday night and on Saturday we had our 1st Annual Braegger family reunion. This is the first get together since my grandma passed away. I thought it was a great success! We were able to get the girl's home in Mantua and it was so beautiful with the leaves changing. We had a dutch oven dinner and I cooked the chicken and potatoes. I thought the potatoes turned out but the chicken was disappointing. I over cooked it so it was dry and needed some sauce or marinade. Anyway we played games the kids did a craft. We talked and laughed and the kids did a pinata. My niece Ivy has inherited my sweet tooth and she was army crawling in to get some candy. It was hilarious to watch and she even threw a piece in her mouth wrapper and all so she could eat it! I think everyone had a great time and I look forward to the one next year. I have reserved the date so hopefully with that much notice everyone can come. I was also able to go to the Brigham City temple dedication and it was so neat. President Packer spoke and said he pleaded to the lord to let him live to see the temple finished. It was such a blessing the lord preserved his life long enough to do so.Since him and his wife both grew up in Brigham they let him do the dedication. It was a fun weekend but really busy! I am looking forward to going home for Christmas.I love the holidays!!
