My middle baby is 18 today!!!!!!!!!
Friday, April 17, 2009
I don't know where the years went.
Brandon is such a good boy. He is so excited. He thinks it is wonderful to be an adult. Boy does he have a lot to learn. LOL I hope he has great success in everything he does. He still asked if he got a present in the morning on the breakfast table (tradition) and he also asked if he could still look for his Easter Basket last Sunday (yes they all still get Easter baskets and I hide them and they look for them).
I can't let go and they get free candy. Who doesn't like free candy?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRANDON!!!

I missed this-and just wanted you to know that I teared up at the Easter basket and free candy-and traditional present on the table.
My daughter is 26, now-and Teri they never truly leave us-she still calls our place "home" eventhough she has lived away for 8 years. I think that I did the same.
God Bless you and yours, Mom.

HAPPY 18 th BIRTHDAY, BRANDON !
Gee, where has the time gone ? It doesn't seem that long before your little one is all grown up ! ( As we used to say to our daughter, "All grown up, now what will you be on Halloween !" lol )
I'm sure whatever Brandon chooses to do with his life, he will be successful ! ...... just look at his parents ! You raised him well, so he will always do well !
Hope you had a wonderful celebration ! ~Joani

congrats to Brandon on turning 18 and happy birthday to him. My baby will be 18 in July and it will be so weird. It seems like yesterday she was riding her tricycle around the deck. It's no surprise you have mixed feelings Terri. Hugs. kim

This is a general chart for your son, as HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him. Aries is a good sign for a man to be as it makes him a good leader, but he loves to START so you have to get him to learn to finish and not just 'hand off" to lesser beings under his direction. He could make a good soldier, but he has to watch out being to daring, as HEAD injuries are a concern for Aries men. He has Mars in Cancer, so at his home he will want to "rule the roost."
Since I don't know his time of birth or city/state, I wasn't sure if he has a Moon in Taurus or Gemini. A Gemini Moon person, like Barack Obama, has two mothers, the natural mother and someone else that acts like a mother. Obama had his grandma, I had my older 1/2 sister, as I'm a Moon in Gemini person. A Taurus moon makes for a very stable person, and a good banker, or real estate broker. I do believe his father is active in his life.

Sun is in 26 Degrees Aries.
By nature, you are very energetic and high-spirited. You are fiercely independent -- you must be first in everything you do, and you enjoy taking risks. You are the one who will rush in where angels fear to tread. Quite brilliant at initiating new projects, you are terrible at following them through to completion. You are an enthusiastic leader but you tend to be a reluctant follower. Often you are quick to anger, but you usually recover just as fast, regretting later things you said when you were upset. One of your best traits is that you are simple and direct, blunt and honest -- just be careful you do not hurt others' feelings. Your need to be competitive at all costs may provoke resistance from others, but, as long as you maintain your usual Sunny good humor, this should not prove to be a major problem for you.
Mercury is in 22 Degrees Aries.
Very quick-witted, you are known for being an independent thinker. You love to debate and argue, and are excellent at repartee and battles of wits. At times, however, you act too fast on hastily formed opinions and thus waste a lot of energy defending your rash and sometimes incorrect conclusions. It is perfectly acceptable for you to defend your beliefs with your usual vigor, but try not to take the opinions of others as personal insults.
Venus is in 05 Degrees Gemini.
You are friendly, warm, open and tolerant toward others. You love variety in relationships, indeed you may even prefer to maintain more than one relationship at a time! Very witty and humorous, you have the ability to amuse and please others. This makes you quite popular. You love to play the field and thus find it difficult to settle down and make any deep emotional commitments. Your innate charm and vivacity makes you welcome most everywhere you go.
Mars is in 07 Degrees Cancer.
Your moods are very important to your overall well-being. You are confident and self-assertive when you are feeling upbeat, and you are retiring, irritable and grumpy when you get depressed about anything. Very sensitive, you wear your heart on your sleeve. You are easily angered whenever you think someone has slighted you. It is best for you to show your anger immediately and let it all out, rather than to try to hold it in or to hold grudges for a long time. You're extremely loyal and defensive of your family, neighborhood, community and culture.
Jupiter is in 04 Degrees Leo.
You must be proud of all that you do in order to grow and develop. You enjoy being totally honest and aboveboard and you revel in the admiration and respect you receive from others due to your high- minded, upright way of life. Make sure, though, that your natural tendency to boast and show off is based on your actual accomplishments. Don't fall prey to self-exaggeration or arrogance. You truly do like outrageous spectacles and grand jolly times and will go out of your way to make them a reality.
Saturn is in 06 Degrees Aquarius.
Your personal sense of values is a reflection of the value structures of your peer group and of those you respect and admire. Try to be more critical in your acceptance of these values -- you tend to prejudge the abilities of those you trust and then follow what they say blindly. Basically very conservative, you prefer orderly, systematic changes and fear doing things rashly or impulsively. Ideas and philosophies must have some sort of immediately realizable, utilitarian function in order for you to pay any attention to them.
N. Node is in 22 Degrees Capricorn.
You rarely get involved closely with anyone unless he or she has something specific and practical to offer you. You tend to be "all business" when it comes to dealing with others. You're usually so intently focused on a particular goal that you rarely have time for social niceties or casual fellowship. But you can definitely be counted on by others to get things done. When you say that you'll do something, you do it. As such, you're a valuable member of any team situation and will probably rise to a position of leadership within the group. Your trustworthiness and sense of responsibility are unquestioned. But do try to avoid the temptation to "use" others to reach your goals -- they might come to resent you.

Time definitely flies! My oldest will be 18 in 9 months...9 short little months. It is hard for me to believe that next year I will be sending her off to college. I know you raised him right so Brandon will do VERY WELL!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRANDON!!! (Gotta say HB to a fellow STEELERS FAN!)
