12/2/07 – Festival of Choirs

A couple of weeks ago, we had a "Festival of Choirs", which is an annual church event. We hear a bunch of choirs sing Christmas songs, and then everyone stays afterwards to hear a Christmas devotional.

So Jenna is a starer. The lady two seats down from us was like, “she doesn’t even blink!” Said lady made the mistake of encouraging Jenna by looking back at her and smiling. This meant that Jenna felt free to stare at her THE WHOLE TIME. After a while, the lady said, "You're going to get a crick in your neck!"

Finally, Jenna fell asleep and was sleeping in her carseat throughout much of the Christmas Devotional, and then...BOOM SHAKALAKALAKA!!! Thomas S. Monson, one of the speakers, loudly began his remarks and scared the POOP out of Jenna. She was wide awake from that point on. She didn't think it was funny, but we couldn't stop laughing at her expression.

The token embarrassing moment as a parent was when I was taking Jenna out of her carseat shortly after her rude awakening. The carseat fell off the chair and crashed to the floor sooo loudly.

I also discovered that when you become a parent, at some point you will find yourself thinking, “What do I do with this booger??”

Random quotes during the event:

“I wonder how many conductors had to fall backward before they put a bar behind them.” - Braden, while watching the MoTab conductor
“I just wanna take that sticker off her!!” - Ker, about a lady two rows in front of us who had a random bell knitted on the back of her sweater, and it so looked like someone had planted a sticker on her without her noticing

Clearly boogers are for wiping on the kid's clothes somewhere
