Tales from my Childhood- Little House style

Little House on the Prairie, how I love you so!

While in NYC I had a chance to meet "Mary" from Little House on the Prairie. Very exciting for this country girl who has seen every episode of that show multiple times. It was a staple in our household growing up. Now, I was never THAT country but I had a lot of "Hal Pint" in me. I liked to kick it in the woods, climbing trees, being inquisitive, talking my sister's ear off at night with all of my silly thoughts and sometimes just being a nosy little busy body.
I unfortuntately gave my copy of "The Way I see it" to my mother right away as a gift thinking she would love it. She did, however, yesterday I was watching the Today show and saw that Nellie from Little House as a book out. So now I am totally on a Little House kick!
I absolutely ADORE Melissa Gilbert by the way and not just in Little House. I've seen just about all of the cheesy Hallmark movies and the horribly tragic Lifetime movies. I'm all over it. Her and Nancy McKeon from Facts of Life are my favs on the Lifetime front!
Anyway, I am going to snag my copy of The Way I see It sooner than later and check out the other two memoirs as well. I also dragged out my crusty old copies of the Little House books. (Sigh) They made me so happy as a kid! I don't know if I'll reread them all but definitely
Little House in the Big Woods.

Any Little House fans out there?

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Sorry, that's supposed to say Half Pint!

My sister and I both loved watching this show. She's a bigger fan than me, but still enjoyed it. A few years ago I started reading the books. I think I still have a couple yet to read

One of these days I'm gonna get to the LIW museum that we have here in MN.

I love Little House on the Prairie! I read all of the series when I was younger and now I want to read them again!!!

Yup! I was about the same age as Melissa Gilbert when the series aired, so watched every single one.
Those ladies have aged well, too.

i think i've seen every episode of Little House ever made...I used to want to be Melissa Anderson so badly! And when she was blind ~ omg! I cried!

Melissa said...

Oh, I can definitely see you as a Half-Pint! :)

I was - and still am - a big Little House fan. (Of the books and the show.) I read and reviewed Prairie Tale earlier this year and liked it. I knew about Alison Arngrim's book but didn't know Melissa Anderson had a memoir out, too.

I think I'm going to have to go on a Little House kick, too.

I'm reading through the Little House series for the first time now. I'm on On the Banks of Plum Creek. For some reason I didn't get into these books as a child, but I love them now and find they're perfect books for right before bed; gentle and sweet. :)
