Takes a lickin and keeps on tickin

It's starting to feel like fall and I'm loving it. The cooler weather makes me think of spice candles, pumpkins, chili, stew, sweaters and all the things I love about fall.

But enough about the weather.

I'm really posting to say that Blake had his follow up with the cardiologist and he passed with flying colors. Everything looks great! He doesn't have to go back for 3 more years. I always hold my breath a little while they are doing the echo-cardiogram and today was no different. So glad that all is well and he doesn't even have that much of a murmur anymore.

Speaking of the word murmur, my son laughs every time someone says this word. This all started when reading scriptures with him one night. We were reading a passage that talked a lot about murmuring and he got the giggles. Now he laughs whenever he hears it and he'll just randomly say "murmur" to make me giggle.

That is so great to hear about Blake, Tonya!
PS I LOVE fall, too! This cooler weather is the perfect motivation to get my Halloween stuff out.

Thank you, Tonya.

Great news for Blake and for his Mama!

That is so wonderful, tonya. I'm so happy for all of you.

Fall is my favorite for many of the same reasons you listed.

LOL at the murmur story--with Kyle it was "exceedingly sore"--and we still laugh about it today.

Congrats....about Blake!

So glad everything is good. You know, I think the word "murmur" is a little funny, too.

Oh, I'm so glad to know that all is well with your sweet Blake!

I think "murmur" is a funny word, too! I just said it out loud in a deep manly voice and cracked myself up! ;)
