This week's aMusing moments:

So driving home last night my daughter turns to me and says, "So, Momma. We're like made from dust, right?" "Yes, Dacey," I respond. She continues, "So you're allergic to dust. Does that mean you're allergic to yourself?" LOL Don't you just love the way a child's mind works.

Another funny from the week that has aMused me every time I've thought about it... I was listening to K-Love in the van one day this week. They were talking about good names for dogs which is of course a topic that caught my interest. One woman called in and when asked what good name she had to suggest, she responded, "My Husband." She continued telling the DJ that she was not referring to her husband specifically but rather thought the name "My Husband" was clever. She added, "Then you could say My Husband was so happy to see me today or My Husband loves me so much. My Husband does everything I ask. My Husband is so well trained." The DJ's thoughts turned the positive to negative when he asked whether or not "My Husband" was housebroken. He injected, "Because you'd hate to say My Husband pottied in the living room or My Husband just went in the neighbors yard." LOL I know it is warped humor, but it cracked me up! :-)

  1. I love it when kids really ponder things because they are going to come up with something pretty profound! LOL. And I got a kick out of the DJ show. That is too funny!
    Happy Friday to you!!!

  2. I love the way the kids think and see things...honesty and take things literally.

    I was listening to K-Love that same day...I thought that was cute and all the dog names in different languages.

    Happy Friday!

  3. I love the way kids think! Too cute! Thanks for sharing...

  4. Thanks for sharing your smiles.

  5. GREAT name for the dog!

    What about My Husband just ate my shoes!!! LOL! Oh the fun we could have! Teehee!

    My husband just ate poop! UGH!

    My Husband ran off with another dog --boy that could get some stuff started! ROFLOL!!!

  6. Very funny! When the kids were little I used to write some of the funny stuff down and put them in their memory boxes. It's fun to read them now because you forget.

  7. That was funny!!!

    Hope you have a blessed day!!

  8. That is hysterical. Kids minds are such a fun place to never know what they will come up with.

  9. That was so cute... children have such a wonderful way about them... that is food for thought!!

    Hey, what about my husband is chasing his tail!? The list is endless.

  10. Oh I love your daughter's question. Too cute! Kids have an interesting way of looking at life.

Things to Know Before Owning a Golden Retriever:

Our oldest Golden Retriever will be six on April 1st. We got Scarlet when she was just six weeks old and quickly fell in love with her. Within another six weeks, we had our second Golden, Rhett. (Rhett passed away two years ago.) It has been five (almost six) years since we have had adolescent Golden Retrievers in our home. While I have often joked about the “first terrible two years” of a Golden Retriever’s life, I had truly forgotten just how trying a Golden puppy can be - that is until now. Cosmo will be one year old in a matter of weeks, and Rose Bud is six months old. Now all of the reasons we’d joked for so long over how hard it was to survive their puppy hood have come back to me. We’re learning again - the hard way.

With that in mind, I would like to share some tips on owning a Golden. Retriever.

Here are a few things you need to know:

1. You do not own a Golden Retriever. The more accurate description is that they own YOU.
2. Golden Retrievers will chew. If you do not provide the…


So it's been about 15 months since I blogged here.  Most days instead of in depth thoughts, I prefer to post pictures at .  It doesn't require as much brain activity.  But I chose to share this here because it was entirely too long to fit in a Facebook post.  (I do have have four kids after all.)

This was a lot of fun.  I interviewed each of my four kids separately so each answer was original and not "borrowed".  I gained some insight into my kids and learned a few things I need to work on.  And for some reason they all agree I'm obsessed with my dog.  What's up with that.

Here goes..  (Connor is 8, Isaac 12, Jaden 14, and Dacey is 16.)

MOM 1. What is something mom always says to you? Connor  – “You love me.” Isaac  – “God made you special and He and I love you very much.  Precious monkeys and all that jazz.” Jaden  – “If you keep doing that, you’re face will stick like that.” Dacey  – “Be who you are and say what you mean.  T…

Boon's Sunday Sermon #6 - Little Black Dog

Today we'd like to share a writing with you by one of our favorite authors: Elisabeth Elliot.  This piece is beautifully written and describes her thoughts on a dog's 'mortality'.  We hope it touches your heart as it has ours. 

Little Black Dog by Elisabeth Elliot
It is a late October morning of glorious sunshine in New Hampshire and I sit in an antique rocking chair by the window of an old house which was once a barn. The gray rocks on Mount Lafayette's broad summit are dusted with snow, and the sky is as blue as a sky can be. All that is still green today is the evergreens. Between them are the black line drawings of the thin leafless maples, wild cherries, aspens and birches. The feathery tamaracks are dark gold. Little yellow apples hang on one of the gnarled old trees of the orchard. I keep hoping a deer will come for them.

My friend Miriam and I drove up yesterday from Boston for a few days of quiet at my brother's place. Both of us brought a load of desk …
