Here's another example of how times flies. It seems only yesterday that my husband had his promotion ceremony with the fire department, but it was back in October! My husband was promoted from fire fighter to driver. He was very excited, as were the rest of us. I'm excited for him because it's an achievement for him, but mainly because it means he won't be going into the burning buildings nearly as often since he has to stay with the truck to pump the water. WHEW! That's a big load off of my mind. I've posted some pictures from that happy day. I just wanted to share with you some of the happier times of my life. I also want to add that even though my husband is considered a hero by many, he is mainly MY hero (go ahead, you can say it, "awwwww...")
Now Dwight's officially a driver . No he's not standing on anything, he really is that tall. He stands heads and shoulders above the rest. ;0)
Here he is with his family. Left to right: His dad, his mom, our daughter, our son, Dwight in back, me, my cousin, who is also Dwight's district chief. We have four family members in the fire department - hopefully soon to be five! Two are captains, one district chief, a driver, and hopefully one day soon another fire fighter.
