Loving Laura

"Laura lived in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her big sister Mary, her baby sister Carrie, and their good old bulldog Jack." Snook and I are really enjoying reading our way through the My First Little House Books series, in no particular order. She seems enthralled by the depiction of life in simpler times. I'm just so happy that she's enthralled with any stories in which the heroine isn't wearing a crown.

I read and re-read this series over and over when I was little girl.

I so wanted to be Laura, baking bread and airing out the straw tick mattresses and making maple syrup candy in the snow.

And SO feel you on the Dasheel! But we had to spell it that way. I half expected our little guy to be a red head too, but so far looks like he's a blondie.

I can see Snook wearing a cute apron dress and bonnet. You just inspired me to read this series. I think Ian would like it. Confession: Rod actually asked for the DVD series a few Christmases ago, so we have them on DVD and used to watch them all the time!
