The Promotion Ceremony....

It is official. My Capt is now a Major! He had his promotion ceremony last week. As a surprise I flew his grandmother should have seen the look on his face! I couldn't take any pics of it cause where he works has a bunch of classified stuff and they don't allow cameras. Bummer.
His mom also flew in as a dad drove up...a friend of his from 20 years ago drove in...and My Ya-Ya, Jen, and family came. It was awesome!!! There was pomp...and circumstance....his speech was a tear jerker.....we had cake....there were about 402 trips to the airport...we had dinner was perfect in every possible way. I was able to get one picture before the ceremony started and then got caught up in it all. Yep. Bad blogger, I know. So now I'm back baby!!! I've got stuff to say! I just need to clean my house and get started on this massive laundry pile. Our dryer broke last week in the midst of all the company. When the repair man came and opened it up he called me in to look at the lint build up. I can only say OH MY GOSH!!!! He had me call maintenance so they could flush out our dryer vent. It took them 30 minutes to get past the clog. That's how full it was. I am very thankful that we did not have a fire. Seems a little bird has had a nest in there for awhile. heh. Stooopid nature.
Thank you to everyone who hung in there with me during these three weeks of absence and sent me emails to check up on me. A special thanks to Chocolate Cat and Ozcountryquiltingmum for sending me some wonderful pressies on my birthday. I am going to put pics of those on soon as I can get some of the clutter put away.

I'm off to start my Monday. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!!!!

Welcome back, I wish we could see the Major's ceremony but all that national security and stuff....very important! Sounds like a good time was had by all, I'm anxious to hear more.

I can see it now, when you and your husband have a disagreement, you'll tell us all about the Major problem!

What special surprises you arranged for him. You must be so proud.

Welcome back. You've been missed! Even though you said you'd be absent last week, I still checked daily just to be sure you didn't write an unexpected post.

Hurray! Congrats again to the new Major!! Glad to see you back.

Maybe you'll even change your background to something without snow.

It's May, Dawn.
