What Has Grandma Been Up To?

It's been awhile since I have been able to write on my blog. I can hardly believe its been almost a year since our move to South Dakota. We will be taking our vacation next week. We will go home to check on our little homestead. I am sure there will be tons of work to get done while we are home.
So our job is going great. We have been caring for and teaching 18 children. We feel blessed every day being allowed to give to such beautiful children.

So the next post I will be sharing about my new puppy! I hope you stop by and check it out.

DIY: Sandcastle Beach Cake

Its been a long time since I have posted on my blog. I would like to introduce my guest Tootsabella and the Rose posting the sandcastle beach cake.
Hello everyone!
I am Tootsabella Rose guest posting from Life with Tootsabella and the Rose
Recently, Grandma Bonnie from Grandma Bonnie's Closet and I had made this super cute and tasty sandcastle beach cake.
We had such a great time with this cake that we both agreed that it was the easiest and most fun cake we have ever made. It looks challenging for sure but I assure you the non cake decorating person can do this. If you are interested in making this cake, head on over to my blog for the details and more pictures. Enjoy the cake and have a wonderful day!

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.
