Tyler Is On His Way!!

My best friend Jennifer in Indiana is having her baby boy, Tyler Jesse Broadstreet, today! She may even be delivering as we speak? I know she's very excited, and I just had to share my excitement with you all as well!

I met Jennifer in Sunday School, during my senior year of high school. She walked in behind this other girl in our Sunday School class who had a habit of bringing some fellow "band nerds" with her, so I just assumed she was "one of those." :) Ha! We quickly found out she wasn't who we thought, and then we discovered our common love of...Jesus and food!!! :) We walked across the street to the little gas station before Sunday School started and bought 2 of our favorites...chocolate milk and Chili Cheese Frito's! :) Yes, sad to say, that was our breakfast on many, many Sunday mornings at Victoria Bible Church! We went to a mini-carnival in the K-Mart parking lot that afternoon, we made bets on who had the messiest bedroom, and then went to each other's house to see who was right (I WON!), we spent the night at her house that evening, and that was that!

She was a night-owl, and I an early bird...which made for some interesting sleepovers to say the least! :) One time, a bunch of us (meaning her sisters, my sister, and our common friend Sarah) were staying over and doing facials, etc. in her upstairs bedroom, when I fell asleep and they decided they were going to go downstairs and make Kool-Aid.?? She forced me up and told me I could go lay on their bar. :) Well, she indeed woke me up...instead of sugar in the Kool-Aid, she accidentally put 1 c.+ of SALT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was the nastiest thing I've ever tasted!!!

I avoided confrontation at all cost, and she taught me how to talk out problems...for which I will be eternally grateful! We've cried together, we've laughed together, we've prayed together...she is a true friend!

Just over 3 years ago, I had the privilege of flying to Florida after she had her first baby, Abbie, and stayed with her a week. Now, in about 6 more weeks, I'll be able to do the same and get to see baby Tyler!!

I promise to post picts. when I get some! In the meantime, please pray for a safe and healthy delivery!

Love you, Jennifer!!!!!

Sounds like you have tasted "Caed's drink." SALT water with a hint of sugar free Kool-Aid. ha! Very nasty, but he loves it (and it's working)

Love and miss you!

As Bethany's mom, oh boy!, could I tell some tales on these two....but they would be good ones. We thank God for Jennifer in our lives, and in particular, in Bethany's. She's a jewel! :)
