48th Kid Lit Blog Hop; Halloween; Lititz Teen & Kid Literature Festival; Movie Premiere Party & Wordless Wednesday (That's All)

Welcome to the 48th Kid Lit Blog Hop! Before we get to hopping, we would love to share a photo journal of our author's busy (and exciting) weekend.

Of course, Friday began the excitement with Halloween. 

Lego even joined in. 

On Saturday, Felicia traveled to Lititz to attend the 2014 Lititz Teen & Kid Literature Festival, hosted by Aaron's Books.

Felicia and Erik (co-hosts of The Write Chat) were able to interview Mr. Matt Phelan for an upcoming episode (bottom picture in the collage above). 

When Felicia arrived home on Saturday, her Moonbeam Book Award was waiting to be opened.

Sunday rounded out the weekend with Something's Awry Productions' Premiere Party. This talented production company was kind enough to include Felicia in their festivities. Felicia and her parents said the party was great and that the movies were phenomenal. We hope the films are well-received in the film festival circuit. Paws-crossed. :-)

Stanley & I are still recovering from all of the excitement - and we stayed home. 
Ha! How was your weekend? 

We are excited to participate in Wordless Wednesday Blog Hops.
We encourage you to visit them as well.
Thank you to all of the fabulous hosts!

We didn't forget about the Kid Lit Blog Hop, which is the whole point of this post, right? The Kid Lit Blog Hop is where we continue to develop a dynamic and engaged community of children's books bloggers, authors, publishers, and publicists. Please know that you are always more than welcome to join us by popping in a post and hopping around to meet some of your fellow Kid Lit bloggers and authors! We are pleased to be welcoming two fabulous co-hosts this week: Kimbra, the blogger behind The Barefoot Librarian and Tiffiny from the blog, Spark and Pook. We wave our paws "hello," to Kimbra and Tiffiny!

Happy Hopping!
