Hugs for Everyone!!

I swear I could have hugged everyone I know since I returned to Kansas on Friday night!!! I hugged Matt & the boys hundreds of times...I even hugged my co-workers Jim & Pam when I got to work yesterday...with tears of happiness in my eyes!! I think I could have even hugged my boss, John...if people wouldn't have looked at me strangely! Ha!

It's not that I didn't enjoy my week of mommy time...it's definitely "you don't know what you have until it's gone". I am planning to get out a little bit more next week when I return to Alabama. Of course, since I was so stressed about going last week, a lovely fever blister popped out on my lip. Yuck!!! So I didn't really want to go anywhere...I ate mostly fast food in my hotel room. Next week I think I'm going to find a mall to browse through. I'll definitely have to leave some room in my suitcase!

Dylan's football team won their first game last Saturday...39-26! He got 2 carries as a running back...he's just so darn small and shifty...definitely like a Darren Sproles. The quarterback also threw the ball to him for a 2 point conversion, but he underthrew it. They have a game this Thursday night and another one on Saturday.

Collin is learning to say so many words...football, Oreo, cookie, monkey, bus. He also knows how to act out "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on a Bed"...he waves his finger like crazy when I say "the doctor said, no more monkeys jumping on a bed!"

Have an awesome day ya'all! (Nope, still can't quite do the southern accent...it's still too easy to say "you guys"!)

Greetings from Alabama!

Tonight's my last night in Mobile. I'm headed home tomorrow evening!! This week has been good...there is so much stuff that we're going to have to coordinate...and I'm sure I'll find out more when I come back down here on the 19th.

I have pretty much stuck around the hotel. I did drive down to Gulf Shores on Tuesday night. I arrived just as the sun was setting. I had just enough time to run down on the beach, stick my feet in the water, take some pictures, and pick up a few sea shells for Dylan.

I'm so ready to see my boys and Matt!! I spent much of the day on Monday getting teary-eyed, but the tears don't come so readily after 4 days of being away.

I think my mind is fried...I'm going to watch the Office wedding and hit the sack!
