Promotion Day!!!

Hello everyone!!!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  There is so much going on this week but I do hope to have plenty of things to post for you to see so please check back often to see what may be up.  Since we didn't have very many people enter my giveaway I am going to leave it open for another week.  Just leave a comment on this post and if you have a cute whimsy image please link to it.  They are doing a special Christmas giveaway so please go check it out here.
Today is the day we have been waiting for for quite a while.  My husband, as most of you know, is in the military.  He is enlisted and has been a Staff Seargant for most of our married life.  Today he is being promoted.  He will now be a Technical Seargant and I am so proud of him.  In the Air Force to be promoted to the rank he is and the rank he is being promoted and to Master Seargant (which comes next) you have to study and take a test.  It is very difficult to get promoted because of this, especially since my hubby has difficulty with tests.  I knew he could do this and am so proud of his accomplishments.
I decided that since we get to go to a special promotion ceremony with my boys and my parents that I wanted to make him a card.  He might get a little upset with me at first because I took one of his "stripes" and put it on the card.  I did make sure that I used repositional tape so that we can take it off easily and then get the remnants off so the "stripes" can be sewn on to his uniform.  I hope he likes it.
Of course this promotion comes just in time to help with holiday expenses and of course the new baby.  We couldn't be more happy for all the wonderful stuff we have going on in our lives.  We are truly blessed.

We are all very proud of you sweetheart!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Oh, Missy! That is fabulous! Congrats on a job well done to your husband and again, thank him for his service! My middle son is heading for MEPS this weekend to enter into the DEP. He'll go to basic training this summer. Anyway, congrats and great card!
