Where I've Been

First of all, we're all okay!  But last Saturday on our way to Salt Lake for a couple of family Christmas parties we hit the heart of the storm that we knew was coming.  After about 20 minutes we hit a patch of ice going about 35/40mph.  We slid until we had turned around then hit the dirt shoulder rolling into the median valley until we were back on all fours.  The truck is totaled but none of us were!  My arm was pretty mangled so they took me to the hospital for xrays, but nothing was broken just incredibly bruised and beat.  We were very blessed!  Another great blessing was that my aunt and uncle were not too far ahead of us, by coincidence, so they were able to turn around and help out at the hospital and give us a ride to Salt Lake!  So we ended up in Salt Lake longer then we had planned so I wasn't able to upload pictures, and when we did finally get home our internet was out due to the unexpected blizzard in the desert!  But life is finally settling back to normal, so I hope to get caught up now!

oh my goodness! First of all, I'm just glad you are okay... ALL OF YOU! Truly a blessing.

That must have been quite scary.

Geez! I can only imagine how scary that would be, especially with the little ones in the car! I'm glad you guys are okay though!

Oh my WORD! I had no idea, I wasn't sure what you meant on your comment on my blog. I am SOO GLAD that you guys are all okay! That is one of my biggest fears (especially since having kids). Thank goodness for the angel watching over you. I wish I could have seen you when you were here...hopefully next time:) and congratulations on your dad's big news, she seems like such a wonderful lady! Merry Christmas!

I'm so happy that Tami, Todd, Liv and Gary are all safe. It's the best christmas present that a Grandpa, Dad could be given. Thank You Dear Lord (and a special angel)for letting them be well.

I'm glad you're o.k., but the entire experience must have been frightening. What a blessing that people were there to help!
