LTC Booth

Congratulations dear!!

We haven't done a good job of taking family pictures. Fortunately, we have two real photographers at JB's promotion ceremony yesterday so we now have a couple of nice ones to add to our album. (You military-types out there will note these pictures were taken before we changed the rank insignia!)

The promotion ceremony was a nice little affair, very formal though. I'm very proud of JB...Lord knows, he's worked hard for this! The Guard has also submitted a story to the local paper about his promotion being upstaged/delayed by our adoption. Of course, we wouldn't change a thing!!!

Indeed that is a nice family shot. We are very proud of John. I did feel that DG slightly upstaged her father but I know he didn't care one bit. Mimi

Congratulations! That's a great picture. I love the hair ribbon. DG looks cute and everyone else looks really happy.

Congratulations! Even though we were unable to attend the formal ceremony, we are so proud of you, John. The family photograph is so special. We're looking forward to holding DoriGrace soon.
Love, Mary and Bob
