Church + Makenna = laughter

Our church just recently started Friday nite service. I love this idea as I'm not a huge fan of getting up on Sunday or really doing anything that doesn't involve football/eating. (Sorry God!) So I wanted to try the Friday nite service. My mom took pity on me and went with M and I. (Lance didn't get home until late so he wasn't available to go.) So it wasn't full but there were plenty of people there. The service starts and M is loving all the singing and things going on. She is VERY busy looking around. The sermon starts and she's still bouncing. No problem! The pastor finishes the sermon with

P: "Now let's bow our heads to prayer. Dear Heavenly Father (pause)"
M: ~tooot~ ~tooooooooot~
P: ...continues with the prayer....

~insert me and the whole row behind and in front of us rolling in laughter~ My mom asked if I needed to leave because I'm laughing so hard. I finally get control of myself and the grunting begins. Insert more giggles as Miss Thang grunts and groans and fills her diaper during the rest of the prayer. I was pretty certain the couple in the row behind us was going to have to leave as they were laughing SO hard at her. So "we join in the final hymn" and Miss Thang sings/talks with the whole song. It was so adorable. By now, I'm laughing again from her "singing" and the fact that she stinks so bad that my eyes are watering! It was quite the experience!! Lance is getting "church duty" this Friday....

It'll probably be Christmas before I can get my mom to go back to church with us!! :/

Too funny! Friday night church services are more casual, right? Maybe Miss Makenna is cut out for the formality of Sunday mornings :)
