A few days later the detective called back and it went down like this: the robbers had gotten into Ty's car. He accidentally left it unlocked when he went to the gym with his wallet in the console. The robbers scanned all of his credit cards, then replaced them so Ty never knew anything had happened. Fortunately, the police arrested the men later in the day, so they never had a chance to use our cards. However, this is such a sneaky scam - they could have used the credit cards for days before we noticed or were alerted! I know these are hard times for people financially, and some people are able to justify being dishonest to make ends meet. So please be careful as you are out and about this holiday season and beyond!
As an aside, Ty is forgiven for leaving his car unlocked. He goes to the gym at an ungodly hour of the morning to work out. He is religious about this and I'm very proud of his dedication (and a little jealous, because I go days/weeks without working out). Also, we see God's hand protecting us in this situation in a variety of ways. Praise Him for being our Protector and Provider!

Below is a video taken today of Colt dancing to some Reggae Christmas music on tv. He loves music and has recently started dancing all the time. He usually puts his left arm in a chicken wing when he dances, but didn't do it for the video today. Anyway, don't feel like you need to watch the video... it's mostly for the grandparents :)

He also climbs on his toy table and pretty much anything else that is his height. Colt also has been acting like Molly lately. Here he is mimicking her by crawling. He's also started saying "No!" when Molly barks. I guess he picked that one up from me!

Anyway, the new baby is due February 28th or March 1st or sometime around there. We went today for a 13 week ultrasound. At this same appointment with Colt, the doctor was able to tell us we were having a boy. However, today the lady who did the ultrasound was not on the same page. She didn't even look at the genital area! She said there is too great a chance of getting it wrong at this stage of the game. So, while we are grateful everything looked healthy with the baby, we were disappointed that we'll have to wait another 6 weeks to find out the gender. And for those of you that are wondering, the baby and Colt will be 20 months apart. Yea!

First, my laptop is broken and is off being repaired which is one reason for the lack of posts and also why I haven't been keeping up with your blogs.
Second, we've moved! SURPRISE! We have packed up our home in Tampa and have moved back to Austin. We are extremely sad to leave Tampa and the wonderful friends God provided us while we lived there, but know that He is leading us back to Texas, so we must follow. We bought a house in Austin which was built in 1979. The original owners just moved out and didn't update one single thing in the past 30 years, so they left that job to us. We are having the home completely remodeled (wall texture, kitchen cabinets/appliance, bathrooms, lighting, EVERYTHING) and are living in Marble Falls until the work is completed (hopefully by Aug 1st!).
Well, that's about it for now. I will catch up on posts and on your blogs once my laptop is returned. Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

This past week, my mom was in town visiting. We took a trip to the beach, ate at some good restaurants, and had a 1st birthday party for Colt. Here is the week in pictures :)
Since Colt loves to hum and sing along with music, we had an American Idol birthday party. We played Rock Band and had a yummy cake.
Colt wasn't real sure about the cake at first, but he figured it out pretty quickly...
...but eventually everyone staring at him and laughing at his cuteness, wore him down. "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!"
Since we hadn't seen my mom since Christmas, we went to a nice part of our neighborhood and took some family photos:
Here are some pics of us at the beach:
