One Proud Momma!

September 7, 2012 My oldest son Brian was promoted to Sergeant of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Dept.  He's been a Deputy for 17 years...11 of them have been with the K-9 unit.  Earlier this year he was promoted to detective of the theft division.  It was a big change from going to work with his K-9 partner every night.  Now that he has promoted to Sergeant his assignment is the main jail.  He spent two years in the jail when he first was hired.  When you promote you have to go back to jail! lol  

Deputy Jason Ramos was telling a little about Brian and his career with the Sheriff's Dept.   The man in the middle is "THE SHERIFF" and on the right is my son.  He was nervous! lol

Brian and his family.  Poor Lily (in the blue) had an eye infection and was having trouble keeping her eye open for the pictures.
Brian and his proud Papa!

Brian and his proud Momma!  

We took Brian to lunch after the ceremony to celebrate.  While enjoying our lunch a gentleman on his way out stopped and shook Brian's hand and said "thank you".  He had no idea we were celebrating he just wanted to say thanks!  I was so touched by that!  :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Now girly...get going on your cabinet. You will LOVE IT. I did spray the handles and then lightly antiqued them with dark wax (annie sloan). I love how it came out. Couldn't handle the brass color.
