One way to celebrate Laura's and Almanzo's birthday month is with a birthday card. No, you can't send a card to Laura and Almanzo, but here's a great card shower idea posted at Trundlebed Tales that we encourage everyone to participate in, if possible:
Card Shower for Burr Oak Museum: http://trundlebedtales.wordpress.com/2009/02/08/card-shower-for-burr-oak/
The hotel in Burr Oak is one of only two structures still remaining where Laura lived during her childhood, the other one being the Surveyors House in De Smet, South Dakota. That's history worth preserving! Check out the link, participate as you are able, and please help spread the word!

Be sure to take a moment... a minute... an hour... or the whole day... to remember Laura Ingalls Wilder and the wonderful gift that she has given to each of us, on this, her 142nd birthday. Happy birthday, Laura!
If you did something special -- big or small -- to celebrate Laura's birthday today, drop us a comment and let us know how you honored the occasion!
