I didn’t start reading the Little House books until I was eleven. So I missed out on being Laura Ingalls Wilder for Halloween (that will be remedied this year!) and I never really had a prairie girl birthday party, although I recently found a photo that proves I must have had what would have the closest we could come with a Betsey Clark cut-out as a centerpiece for my 13th birthday party. The wonderful cake that my mother made and decorated that year also had a Betsey Clark doll on it.
But after I saw this young girl’s Little House on the Prairie birthday party which was recently shared on facebook by fellow LIWLRA member and LauraPalooza attendee, Laura Whitaker, I was wowed.
I have a birthday coming up soon and asked my husband to take a look at the pictures so he could throw me my Laura birthday party. I’ll be 52.
What about you? Did you have a prairie girl or boy birthday party?
