Thank you all SO MUCH for the birthday wishes yesterday! You’re so sweet to me! 🤗❤️😘 I’m slowly responding, as I must’ve been “liking” your comments too quickly last night, and Instagram cut me off. 😬 Yesterday I went antiquing just for fun, as I didn’t really have money to spend. I did find another old school book for $6 to add to my collection here in the homeschool room. It’s from 1917 and is about school hygiene. It’s pretty hilarious to read how different things were 100 years ago...and also how similar some things still are. 😂 I also stopped by @eight.hundred.furniture in Morgantown and picked up some @mmsmilkpaint in Boxwood Green. Let’s just say I have something new planned for the dining room table in the near future. 😉❤️🤗 #hideandseekfarm#homeschoolroom
Laura was happiest of all. Laura had a ragdoll. She was a beautiful doll. She had a face of white cloth with black button eyes. A black pencil had made her eyebrows, and her cheeks and her mouth were red with the ink made from pokeberries. Her hair was black yarn that had been knit and raveled, so that it was curly. She had a little red flannel stockings, and little black cloth gaiters for shoes, and her dress was pretty pink and blue calico. She was so beautiful that Laura could not say a word. She just held her tight and forgot everything else.

I know I'm posting too much, but i am not sorry, so thankful for the amazing children God has blessed us with, they are my life, my heart beats for them..
Watching a movie, serious sleepover coming up.. Since daddy is gone to Manitoba for a few days..
This little pioneer girl has done her chores.....
Chopped some wood, put some new hay in the mattresses, tapped the maple trees, put some fresh ice blocks in the food cellar, milked the cow.....all sorts of prairie shenanigans.
Just kidding, I bought the wood at Giant and everything else is a huge lie. I did fill my bird feeders and put away groceries though.
I absolutely ADORE The Little House series. I devoured these books in school when I was a girl and constantly checked them out from our library. So much, in fact, that other kids would come up to me to ask when I was returning them 🤣🙈
I also wished I was Laura Ingalls on the daily and was so sad that it wasn’t the 1800’s.
Have you read this series? Or what was your favourite childhood series?
Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmastime.

I love this picture Paula @paulafairman posted. You definitely have to check out her IG. This week my WG and I watched two of the Christmas episodes of Little House on the Prairie and this picture came to mind. I always loved watching and reading the books when I was younger. We may have a chance of snow this weekend and I am praying that we will! I love to see the excitement of Christmas and snow through the eyes of my sweet girl. Hope you are having a wonderful start to the weekend!❤️ #followfriday
Today we read the story about Santa not being able to cross the creek, so Ma made cakes "with white flour and white sugar!" White sugar is pretty rare for us, as is the Christmas-colored sprinkles!!! #littlehouseontheprairie#simpleDecember#homeschool
P.S. we used @chocolatecoveredkatie Sugar cookie bar recipe!! Which was a perfect cross between cookie & Ma's cakes 😉
