What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books! I must admit, I didn't realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series. It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie! Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way. At Camille's request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories... prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books, and "pretty"...because "Ma" liked things to be pretty!
