Merry Hobbit Day!

 In honor of the 75th anniversary of the publication of "The Hobbit", this week is known as Tolkien Week!  It celebrates the author, J.R.R. Tolkien and his wonderful literary compositions dealing with Middle Earth; The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord the Rings (Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King), Unfinished Tales, and The History of Middle Earth.

Today is "Hobbit Day", which is Frodo and Bilbo's birthday!  I spent the day teaching my little sister, Aly, about hobbits and eating like hobbits, kinda.  We fudged a little, but we ate six meals!

First breakfast!

Still a little sleepy!

Second breakfast!

Hobbit feet!  We went barefoot all day!

I love her!

Even Lacey enjoyed our day!



Afternoon tea!



Ready to watch "The Fellowship of the Ring"

I'm ready too!
