Video Clip - Those of you who have a dog and children know all too well how patient our 4-legged family members are with the little ones... our Ziggy is no exception. Thomas and Ziggy really do play very well together, but that is in large part because Ziggy has a heart of gold and patience that seems to go on forever. Here is a look at the two of them this morning...

Video Clip - Here is another nightly routine for Thomas. He is Daddy's little helper when it comes to feeding Ziggy dinner. He scoops the dog food into the bowl, opens the door to go outside, helps clap (which signals Ziggy that he can now eat) and lastly, looks for froggies out on the back porch with Daddy. He loves frogs! Enjoy!
Video Clip - We were changing sheets today and Thomas thought it was extremely funny that his mattress was on the ground. As you can see, he made full use of it a bouncy mattress. I know, I know - my son loves to jump and play around. Enjoy!

Brian took today off from work to run around and do lots of errands. It was around lunch time and Brian was turning onto the main Hwy in our town (Hwy 98); as he was stopped at a light, he looked up and saw his truck go by. Yes - he saw his truck drive by with teenagers joy riding in it through town. You may be asking, "how did he know it was his truck?" My answer is quite simple - Brian knows his truck; he loves his truck; he also happened to put some custom things on his truck that most people would not have on it; so I tell you again - Brian knows his truck.
No sooner did he see his truck drive by in the opposite direction, he busted a U-turn! And wouldn't you know there was a cop coming off of the Navarre Bridge Causeway right towards him. He waved him down (before he could say anything to Brian about jumping the curb as he did a U-turn) and with his blood pumping and rushing through his body, told the cop that his truck had been stolen last week and he just saw it go by. The cop quickly jotted down "the facts" and took off in persuit. Of course, Brian wanted to follow the cop and "be in on the action," but wouldn't you know that he got caught behind a school bus and then a stop light. Poor guy only wanted to get his truck and be there when they caught the bad guy! Anyway, by the time Brian cleared most of the traffic and was cruising the open highway looking for the cop and his truck, it had been several miles and there was no sign of them. Brian just kept driving into the next county (Okaloosa Co) and headed into Ft. Walton. In a matter of just a second, he could see the cop car had pulled over the truck on the side of the road and there, with it, was a sight to see...
Four cop cars had surrounded the stolen truck; all the cops had their weapons drawn and were pointing them at the 4 thieves after they had pulled them out of the truck and put them on the ground. Wow... Brian saw all of this and his blood was boiling - oh was he pissed at these kids who had stolen HIS TRUCK! Anyway - truck was recovered and returned to Brian this afternoon. Boy is he a happy camper! Truck is a mess inside (hopefully there are no drugs in it, but we will have it inspected by the law enforcement); you can tell the kids went 4x4 off road and hit something - big old dent on one side with plenty of scrapes to keep it company. All of our possessions are gone - except Thomas' little DVD player that he watches Elmo. Get this - they even changed out the license plate, took all of Brian's decals and window stickers off and replaced it with their own "redneck gangta" stickers. The NERVE of these kids - trying to act like it was their truck now. The kids they arrested were all teenagers from the local high school - but one had a rap sheet a mile long - something like 30+ arrests already. Yeah, there is an up-standing citizen for ya.
Anyway - I'm sure there are things we have to handle with the insurance company over the next several days - but I can tell you that we have a very happy boy on our hands. And can you believe that Brian was the one who found his car and helped recover it? The arresting officer told Brian that never happens - EVER! No one ever finds their own vehicle. The officer also told Brian he was the luckiest son-of-a-gun and should probably think about going to buy a Lotto ticket tonight so that we can win with that too! This is just too much.

In addition to being victims of theft, Thomas is sick. Poor guy hasn't been sick since late Spring and now he has an ear infection, fever, running nose, watery eyes and he just isn't his happy self. Matter of fact, it is a lot of crying and whining. Really he just wants to be held and snuggled with. Who could blame him - isn't that what we all want when we are sick? On top of that - he got me sick and we think Brian is also on this "sick train" too.
So... there you have it... my excuse why there has not been an update or pictures in the last 2 weeks. Be patient because I'll get back on track soon.
