The Mystery of the Missing Toys

If you know me at all then you know that I am over-the-top anal about NOT losing toys. I categorize and double check all of our toys each night to make sure everything is in the right place and that nothing is missing. So you can imagine that when I discovered a whole slew of toys had gone missing, I was frustrated. I was also perplexed. I looked in all the usual spots - under the couch, behind the entertainment stand, under our bed. I even looked in the not so obvious spots - Pinky's boot (found a cat toy in there though), in the fridge, and through the cat door. Nothing.

Then, as I was once again boring my husband with my irritation level at missing toys, I casually mentioned that Chaos had been trying to stick an egg from his play kitchen into a hole in our speaker (or is it a sub-woofer, I really have no idea what it is other than a big black box in the living room). A light went off. My husband picked up the speaker and shook it. Sure enough, we could hear the rattle of missing toys. A few minutes, a broken flashlight, and two helpers later, this is what we discovered.

First a picture of the speaker so you can understand what I'm talking about:

And, the loot we found inside:

Chaos laughed the whole time. I really think he is going to keep us on our toes.

Oh and for fun, proof that Pinky is just as obsessive as her Mommy:
