She talked about how she got the idea, where some of the characters came from and how she did her research.
When we were almost up to meet her, I went to get everybody their book and ticket ready and one of the tickets was lost! We had 4 books to be signed and only 3 tickets. I search and search with no luck. It must have been dropped and picked up by someone else. I grabbed Bee's hand and walked over to the kind person who helped us earlier. I was hoping that having a sad child in tow would help our cause. She said she had one emergency ticket on her and we got it. What luck again.
Jan (because we are on a first name basis) was so sweet as she met with each person. She talked with the kids and let them help stamp little pictures in the books by where she signed her name and did a little personalization. She even had pre-signed stickers if you had more than one book, since she was only doing one book per ticket.
I think tonight was the most fun for me, but Bee did seem excited to have her book signed. Lou was pretty excited about a large poster all the kids received. It was rolled up like a weapon. Hubby was just happy to have his favorite people enjoying themselves, and was pretty pleased with the inscription he asked Jan for. But, that's a secret.
