Blurt it out!

So there we are at church sitting like angels this last Sunday....listening to two women sing a beautiful song about a journey of finding themselves through Christ. Their voices were probably the most pure and amazing singing voices I've ever heard during church. Penny and Dominic were listening intently (really, they were). The phrase, "Are you happy with where you are in your life" was sung with an ever so slight pause at the end to which Penny added an emphatic "NOOoooooooOOO!" at the top of her lungs and Sean and I gaped in horror for a split second and then giggled for the next 2 minutes ....who is this girl and why does she make us laugh so much? Thanks to Naomi and Levi who shared in the humor of it all


So, I want to know....what are your most embarrassing/funny moments during church?

Embarrassing moment? Probably when Jacob (at about 2 years old) chucked a toy car and hit a man who was seated two rows in front of us in the back of the head. We laughed- what else could we do!

This last Sunday in our new ward, the primary sang the "Hello Song" to the visitors. I'm the new primary chorister in that ward, and I was in our old ward for 2 1/2 years. In our old ward the kids would shout, at the tops of their lungs, "Hey!" at the end of the song. (I never could get them to break that habit.) Well, at the end of the song, the kids in our new ward said "hey" at the same time my son sitting in the front row yelled "Hey!" at the loudest volume he has. Matt said he could hear it (and recognized Jackson's voice) all the way down the hall in Priesthood opening exercises.

Hilarious! Bummer I missed that since leaving with Addison who had just called the Bishop on the stand during the sacrament. We had our own craziness! That's funny, Penny. Thanks for the laugh!

Oh ya- also had Nathan chuck a bag of cheerios and hit Lisa (above) in the head! Not sure if she remembers that!

But the worst was when one of my boys at the age of 4 while holding the top of his pants announced to the people behind us, "Anyone want to see me naked?" True story!

How can I just pick one? Having a bag of cheerios burst everywhere and high in the air. Oh and then there was the time Luke decided he was going to start burping as loud as possible.

I always meant to blog about this one but never did so I would love to share.....
We are sitting in the second to front row and I am struggling (on my own) with my baby while I hear Lauren getting into my bag and pull a ziplock baggy out. Next I hear her saying "treat mommy treat" but I am too focused on my baby to look over. Finally after she yells it several more times I look over to see her holding high above her head, a little ziplock baggy full of tampons! In front of the whole congregation!!!!! I just about died!!! No one ever mentioned Lauren's "treats" but there is no doubt they all saw!! Eeeeek!

That's too cute!! A few years ago during sacrament meeting (and not even during a song) Kaiden yells out "Look, it's a pirate!!" I look over to see a man with an eye patch. Luckily he didn't argue with me when I told him the man actually wasn't a pirate.

Embarrasing moment?? PALEASE! My children are perfect. Eli would never scream, yell or disrupt sacrament in any way. Nor would he roll around in the aisle while his FATHER looked on in amusement while MOTHER scowled at FATHER and told him to get said rolling child out of aisle. Neither would he yell, "Uh Poop" as his eyes begin to water. And he ALWAYS goes to nursery (what's that) without hassle. Nor would he every fight with Myla over toys during church (did I mention the Berejkoff's and the Wilkins are no longer allowed to sit NEAR each other during church). And he definately would NOT crawl under the pews to escape tired unfocused parents for more exciting adventures...like eating found food or stealing other childrens toys. As you can see, church always goes well for us. HA HA!
P.S. I didn't hear Penny yell, but I did hear Addison :) It was cute.
