Little House For The Holidays...Or...Anytime

"Two wonderful stories from the beloved Little House series to warm your heart and make you smile at Christmas Time or anytime!
Take a trip back in time to a vintage holiday classic episode. In "Christmas At Plum Creek",you'll feel the love as you may be reminded of "The Gift of the Magi". It is the first Christmas in Walnut Grove for the Ingalls family. Ma and Pa, Mary and Laura busy themselves trying to get just the right presents for each other. Their days are filled with joyous secrets, loving sacrifices, smiles and tears.Will Laura give up her beloved pony "Bunny" so Ma could have a stove? Even little Carrie will make your heart swell as she remembers the true meaning of the holiday.This one includes the Olsen family....Harriet at her most Scroogelike self, Nels is affable as always, and mean ole Nellie! And it's always a delight to see Mrs. Whipple make an appearance.
In "A Christmas They Never Forgot", Laura and Mary are now grown and married, and are visiting Ma and Pa Ingalls along with Hester Sue. The whole family gets snowed in the tiny house and while the youngsters worry about Santa's arrival, the grown ups, each take turns telling heartwarming tales of special Christmas' of their youth. Caroline's story of how she came to love her step father, especially, had me all choked up! It's a wonderful episode to watch at holiday time or anytime and will have you running the usual range of emotions we are always treated to in these wonderful stories.
These stories sold separately from the season sets are nice for anyone who just has a couple of favorites, or as a wonderful addition to you family holiday viewing. Look other single episodes and double features sold separately.
So gather the youngins around,'get out the way for Old Dan Tucker' and go get those Kleenex, (you know you'll need em) and...Enjoy.....Laurie
another great episode sold separatly: Little House on The Prairie Remember Me

"I had no idea this was TWO Christmas episodes! Imagine my surprise when it arrived! I thought it was just "A Christmas They Never Forgot." Anyway, I have been a fan of this much-loved series for years. As kids, my bother and I grew up watching "Little House on the Prairie" and every Christmas I get him a DVD. I really think he's going to like this. Every show is always perfect! Michael Landon set the bar of excellence so high that no one in the past 30 years has ever been able to even come close!
These are the main cast members of this family-friendly series: Michael Landon (played: Charles Ingalls) Karen Grassle (played: Caroline Ingalls) Melissa Gilbert (played: Laura Ingalls) Melissa Sue Anderson (played: Mary Ingalls) Matthew Laborteaux (played: Albert Ingalls) Ketty Lester (played: Hester-Sue Terhune) Dean Butler (played: Almanzo Wilder) Victor French (played: Isaiah Edwards) Linwood Boomer (played: Adam Kendall) Richard Bull (played: Nels Oleson) Alison Arngrim (played: Nellie Oleson) Melissa "Missy" Francis (played: Cassandra Cooper Ingalls) Jason Bateman (played: James Cooper Ingalls) Rachel Lindsay & Sydney Greebush (Carrie Ingalls) Wendi & Brenda Turnbaugh (played Grace Ingalls)

Merry Christmas!!! "

"I have a 4yr old boy and a 6yr old girl and cant tell you enough about how much we enjoyed this movie especially over the Christmas season. The plots are clean yet interesting and teach us the true meanings of Christmas. These shows are a great lesson on working on conflict resolution and how simple life could be. I only wish television could be this clean again."

"If you are a Little House fan or grew up watching the show like I did then I recommend this DVD for your collection. It is wonderful to have for those Holiday home programming nights! Right along with Rudolph and Santa Clause is coming to town. I am purchasing all seasons of Little House so these are in there respectively, but having them separately together on one DVD is special. The first one Christmas at Plum Creek teaches as always lessons on humanity, love and true giving. The second one as they are older is more like a family reunion with Little House family. I would recommend buying it."
