I know Elizabeth already gave a nice narrative about the decision letters being mailed out, but I thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures from our little celebration! For some reason the person in the office who has never owned a camera has been designated the "camera guy," so please keep that in mind when noticing my extreme lack of picture-taking skills.
The first batch of letters make their way to the truck.
Debra waves to the camera. It was cold and rainy, but the nice thing about being the camera guy is the zoom feature = gets to stand in doorway and still shoot.
It's pretty much a rule: take a group of pictures and at least one shot will have someone whose eyes are closed.
Into the truck they go!
Still going in that truck...
If you haven't realized yet, there was a truck involved.
Even though we were getting wet, it was worth it.
Most of us know how to use umbrellas. Some of us had to learn the hard way *cough* Chuck.
It takes a village to teach someone how to use an umbrella.
Eventually, the crisis was averted.
And eventually we all got cold.
Nothing warms you up better or declares a celebration better than some bubbly.
It was a bittersweet toast, however, as Tom lost a pair of glasses from the poorly controlled cork explosion that occurred moments after this picture.
