Happy Birthday B!
I remember his 1st birthday party. (I don't know if Roni or Jeffrey do, but I do.) It was quite the party almost 200 people, but I can't find a picture of it for the life of me. No comments from the peanut gallery about the fact that I hardly ever take pictures. Those that know me know I usually rely on the pictures that other people take. I do have a pictures of birthdays 2-7 that I posted on Facebook and I will admit that I probably didn't take any of them.
B lives it up and loves life. He truly lives in the moment happy, sad, mad, excited and all the in betweens. There are times that I am so amazed because he just gets it. When he was born, he brought something special to our family. He has and is growing up and we are so proud of him. Branden is a great big brother, a wonderful son, and is a caring loving boy to everyone he meets. (Including the other 2nd grader whose mom was late picking her on the same day I forgot to pick B up at school. He took her to the office, opened the door for her and said to her as they went in the door, "Don't worry Ms. Hizey will help us and she will make it better.") He has taught us some much in the last 7 years and I am sure he will continue to in years to come. He is perfectly Branden. We are truly blessed and thankful for him everyday.
