Did You Know?

Did you know that Kara Chocolates is based in Orem? 

Did you know that Kara's mint chocolate is heavenly?

Did you know that hydroplaning (and therefore spinning) on the freeway is not only dangerous but EXCEEDINGLY FRIGHTENING?!

Did you know that when you have a near-death experience on the freeway with your 14-year-old son in the car, it is possible to pray 50 times in 5 seconds, begging God to protect your son?

Did you know that in those 50 prayers you also have enough time to say, "It's OK to take me," while you're begging Him to protect your son?

Did you know that when your children's friends give their missionary farewell talks your heart will throb with emotion and your eyes might leak a little bit?

Did you know that our "son" Tanar enters the MTC tomorrow?

Did you know that Briana is meeting with her stake president tonight to have her temple recommend signed?

Did you know that our oldest child will be 21 in a week and a half?

Did you know that our oldest child is probably going to be endowed on her birthday?

These are important things, and now you know

I knew almost none of those things (except Kara chocolates...I knew that one) - and I'm glad that now I do know! Glad you're OK and I hope it all goes well with Bri over the next couple of weeks. :D

Your blog makes me laugh, cry, count my blessings, smile (Because I know the man diva), and marvel. I love how you write and what you write about. It's a pure gem. You are a good women Aundrea Hill. A good women!

I'm glad you're okay from the spinning on the freeway. I saw that happen last saturday when it snowed. I watched the whole thing happen in my rear view mirror. The car spun twice, hit the inside barrier wall and then flew backwards accross all 5 lanes of traffic and then flew off the freeway down the dirt hill onto the frontage road. It was a black SUV. I don't think anyone was hurt. That wasn't you was it?
