Show and Tell Friday

I've been reading Kelli's blog for a while and especially enjoy her Show and Tell Fridays. I also enjoy looking at the pictures she uses in her posts. This is my first Show and Tell Friday!

Earlier this week, I read Jeana's posts on her and her family's trip to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home in Missouri. I didn't know there was such a place! So now I want to go there! I think I will visit there next summer!

My grandmother, Mammaw, got me the set of 8 Little House on the Prairie books for Christmas 1978 (I left a comment on Jeana's blog that said it was Christmas 1979. Oops. I was wrong!). I was 13 and wanted to be Laura Ingalls. I had a Laura bonnet! I wish I still had it. Not that I'd wear it, but it'd just be nice to have it for the memories.
Now I'm inspired to re-read the Little House series and I plan to do so this weekend.

Here's my Show and Tell: The 8 Little House on the Prairie books:

Long ago I had bought a book about the real Ingalls family, the real story. If you get a chance to buy it you should....very interesting stuff. It had pictures and everything~

I have a boxed, set, too, only they have a blue background. I've read them through at least once, maybe twice -- would love to do so again. It would be neat to visit her home!

Wonderful books. I didn't know about the Wilder House place either. I hope you get to go. It should be a great place to visit.

How nice! My daughter is 21 and is keeping her set of books too. I might just have to go back and re-read them myself. It's been years!! We still watch the TV series on the DVDs she has collected.
