Happy 18th Birthday Weekend to Our Brando!!!

Brando came into my life a few short years ago. He along with his sister Amber, were an answer to a prayer I had been praying for several years.
When I met Brando, I saw a very giving & loving little boy who was unsure of himself and seemed to me afraid to be who Jesus created him. Now, just a few years later, I see this handsome young man who is still very giving & loving but a young man who has so much more confidence and enjoys his life like never before! Brando loves to help others, he is the first to offer prayer up for you if you have a need, he loves his church www.cornerstonejc.com  ,he has made many new friends at school and church. It seems as if Brando has started to see who he really is!!! Brando even got up in front of his entire school in a kareoke contest singing & dancing; He WON 3rd place & $50!!! Way to go Brando!!!
So all that said, we felt it important to celebrate Brando’s 18th Birthday all weekend long. We went up to www.gatlinburg.com and shopped around, stopped in at fannyfarkles.net  to foot-long corndogs & yard length sodas.. got carmel apples, beef jerky,and of course we spent some time in the arcades & then moved on to mypigeonforge.com There we went to www.calhouns.com  for ribs and of course a birthday ice cream sundae! Since we were in town, we stopped into www.christmasplace.com  to purchase our annual family personalized christmas ornament.
Sunday, we started off by attending our church. Then I was off to run some errands to continue the birthday celebrations. We then packed up again & decided to try a new place to get our Christmas Tree, www.fallbranchchristmastreefarm.com  We found a concolor tree, smells citrisy like oranges! Since Brando is a young adult now & 18..he wanted to chop down the tree, and so he did..his first Christmas Tree chopped down! We brought it home & set it in the stand… Thomas & Brando grilled Sirloin Steak Burgers on the grill together, turning them into Western Burgers while Amber & I strung the lights on the tree.
After our scrumptuous burgers, we had a gormet carrot cake from www.freshmarket.com  per Brando’s request, and vanilla bean ice cream. And tons of gifts including a Nintendo limited Mario & Luigi 3DS XL, clothes, games, Chocolate covered Bacon Bar, & more..plus Amber got him a cd, more chocolate & new ear buds for music listening.
Then we moved into the living room to decorate the tree & watch Buddy The Elf together…
So I’d say, all in all, Brando had a pretty terrific Birthday Weekend.
I am so happy for Our Brando & all that Jesus has planned for him! His verse for this milestone birthday is Jeremiah 29:11-13
Hang on Brando, The Best is Yet to Come!!! HAPPY BLESSED 18TH BIRTHDAY SON!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
