  7. Wow Ella, you must have had a great time. Meeting so many Authors and their books. I’ve yet to make it to a convention but this looks like a good one. Happy Birthday Jesus caught my eye. My Mom always had a birthday cake to celebrate Jesus’s birthday and let us know the real reason behind Christmas. Thanks for sharing your time and pictures Ella.
