little house on the prairie party

8 is great!!

Shaking the cream...
as all the girls took turns making butter, telling prairie stories and playing hot potato to fiddle tunes. Such a simple game but oodles of fun!

Prairie dinner using their own home made butter on the cornbread.



Are these prairie dolls related??



The bonnet girls.

The beads were a hit.


Square dancing all around while 'Pa' played the fiddle.

The whole prairie gang. The girls all went home with their own thimble and a stitching square, needle and embroidery floss. It was so much fun, thanks for coming girls.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
