'Little House on the Prairie' for LIFE

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born on Feb. 7, 1867, in Pepin County, Wisconsin. In honor of what would have been her 150th birthday on Tuesday, here are 13 things we learned from Little House on the Prairie!
13 things we learned from Little House on the Prairie:
How to fall and get back up like a boss:
Best revenge for mean kids?
Just lure them into a creek filled with leeches ...
What true evil looks like:
UGH NELLIE IS THE WORST:
SRSLY THE WORST!!
How to read into subtext:
That sisters are the best
Be careful! Mice can eat your hair while you sleep.
The best candy is snow candy
Just boil molasses and sugar together and pour the syrup onto a plate of clean snow.
Haven’t had a chance to put a roof on the house yet?
Just stretch the wagon cover over it.
Don't have time to build a real house?
You can live in a sod-walled dugout!
Out of flour?
Just, grind wheat to make bread using a coffee grinder.
What to do when the wood and coal are gone
Oh just twist hay into tight bundles for fuel.
A panther screaming sounds just like a woman screaming.
To never give up
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA!
