Book Review and Giveaway
Title: "It's Not About You, Mr. Santa Claus"
Author: Soraya Diase Coffelt

Just in time for Christmas a wonderful book for your children explaining the true meaning of Christmas. I thought I might have a problem sharing this book with some my grandchildren. But, after reading the book myself I found this is a great way to introduce the true meaning of Christmas to young children when they are ready. We have always shared the story of Jesus birth with our children and grandchildren. So, it was a pleasure to read this story to my grandchildren.

I just love the writing style and the illustrations. This book will make a great stocking stuffer for your grandchild.

A Trip South

We made a trip recently to see our granddaughters. The drive took us 18 hours to get there. We spent a day and a half then we had to get back to work. Another 18 hours drive back to work. The trip was well worth it but very long and tiring. I love traveling by car but the drive from north to south was fairly barren. Not much to look at. I did get a few pictures but nothing spectacular.
So here is a sample of what we saw.

Then we ran into this scene when we got over the border into New Mexico.

But the best view of all was our our beautiful granddaughters. 
We are very thankful that we were able to visit them. Every moment spent with our family is worth everything to us.

It's Been Too Long

It's been ages since I last posted on my blog. I have been extremely busy over the last few months with many changes going on in our little world. I will give you a quick rundown on what has been happening here. I accepted a new job out of state. We have kept our home just moved temporarily as far west as I could have ever imagined.
I really did not plan this move it was Gods plan. We had been struggling with a work injury and a long term job loss. As anyone who has been job hunting lately you might know there are few good jobs available to be had locally in small towns. We really tried to stick it out and stay in the same area. I love our little town and our farm. I fought tooth and nail to find a job in the area but after weeks and weeks of being stubborn I realised that fighting to stay was not in our best interest. We prayed and prayed until we saw the path that God was directing us to.
The move was hard on me. I did not think I could be happy away from our family and home. But, knowing that we are serving God and following his direction has helped to put everything into perspective.
The new job we accepted is in community service to needy children. I wish I could tell you more about the job but privacy laws are strict in this nature.  I will be stopping by to check out all the blogs I have not kept up on. Please be patience with me while I catch up with all the good reading I have ahead of me.
On a side note Grandma Bonnie's Closet will be working on a Holiday Gift Guide for the month of November.

Ozeri Green Earth Pan

Disclaimer: Grandma Bonnie's Closet was not compensated for the review of this product. I received a free product in exchange for an honest opinion. The opinions in this post are my own.

I have been wanting a ceramic pan for a while now. When Ozeri ask if I would like to review the Green Earth Pan I was thrilled! I have been using the pan for three weeks now and I must say it looks just like it was on day one. No scratches, peeling or discoloration. I am so pleased to say nothing sticks to this pan. I love the safe 100% PTFE and PFOA free ceramic non-stick coating. 
The frying pan is 8 inches in diameter and has a textured bottom. The elevated texture creates air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking. The pan is easy to clean since food does not stick there is no scrubbing to be done. 
Before the first use the pan should be seasoned with a little bit of oil. High temperatures when cooking are not recommended. Also as with any non-stick pan you should never cut food in the pan. 
The first time I used the pan I made omelettes for the family. The nice thing about this pan is I am able to cook with very little oil. 
At this point I got so excited how well the pan was cooking I forgot to take more pictures. The omelettes turned out perfect. 
The pan comes with its own little protector pad that is good to use when storing your pans together. This will prevent scratching the ceramic coating. 
If you would like to purchase one of these little gems. Stop over to Amazon and get a Green Earth Pan by Ozeri.

Fun With Our Grandchildren and more.

We have been crazy busy this last few weeks. I have hardly had time to write any posts lately. I decided to squeeze in some time just to let all my readers know I am still out here just busy as can be.
We had some baby goats visit us a few weeks ago. They are Pygmy goats and  such sweet little animals. I would have loved to keep them but they are not milk goats so I could not keep them.

We took a short trip to visit our grandsons. They sure are growing like weeds.
 That's Little Roo. Grandma see my balloon hat! You have just got to love those big brown eyes!
Of course Pooh Bear had to join in the fun with his balloon hat and balloon animal.
Then our grandson came for a visit a few weeks later.
Pooh Bear, Little Roo and Little Bug. "Grandma we are picking you these pretty yellow flowers!"
Just too sweet don't you think? 
Then our granddaughters Pumpkin and Sweet Pea came up from New Mexico for a visit. On their way up the stopped to see Pooh Bear and Little Roo.
Next stop grandma's house. Little Bug stopped over to spend the night with his cousins. We had a happy house full. 
My granddaughters wanted to celebrate their birthday so off we went to the American Girl Doll Store.

 Sweet Pea and Ruthie in their matching nighties.
At some point during all the visiting and traveling we found time to drain our Koi pond. It is still sad to think about all the koi we lost. We have since filled the pond and added 4 koi. I shall share some photos later of the new koi.
So what do you think? Have the grandchildren grown like weeds? What have you been up to lately?
