I {heart} Little House on the Prairie

and so does this girl:

she just finished reading "Little House in the Big Woods" in her class and they had a special day to dress up like a character from the series.  after searching high and low for aannnyything that could possibly work we came across my old 8th grade graduation dress.  it was huge on her so we belted it up, threw on some boots and called it "good enough"  i told her she could be "Nelly" because she was wearing a fancy dress.  she wasn't too keen on that idea.  i believe she said she was laura or mary in their sunday best. 

oh how i loved these books and tv show while growing up.  my sister and i used to watch it every day after school. (i loved the part in the intro when carrie is running down the hill and falls over but then gets up right away, so cute. just a random tidbit about me i am sure you are super excited to now know)  i am so ecstatic that my girl is getting into these now too.... YAY! :)


  1. She is too sweet to be a Nelly. She looks more like Mary. Very nice picture.

  2. Ah, after-school special memories! I love that part with Carrie too. And I'm super-excited to read it on your blog. She's so pretty, she can be anybody on the prairie she wants!

  3. You need to make the trip to DeSmet SD... and you are so much closer than we are!


I {heart} your nice comments
