From the 2011 Debs…
Deb Sarah’s new column about baby health and nutrition debuts this month in the November issue of American Baby! But, but, but, the big news is that … drumroll please … Sarah’s debut novel, The Violets of March, has a cover! What do you think? (Sarah is smitten!)
Booklist loves Deb Eleanor’s The Weird Sisters! “There are no false steps in this debut novel: the humor, lyricism, and realism characterizing this lovely book will appeal to fans of good modern fiction as well as stories of family and the Midwest.”
Friends of the Debs…
Upcoming Deb guest Melissa Senate‘s The Love Goddess’ Cooking School is available now!
Past Deb guest Beth Hoffman’s Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is out in paperback!
We’re still reeling from Jennifer Crusie’s thrilling visit to The Ball last Saturday! Huge congratulations to Thea, who won a signed copy of Crusie’s TELL ME LIES, and to Sure Thing, who won a signed copy of MAYBE THIS TIME.
Deb Dish — What The Spooky Debs Are Doing For Halloween
Halloween is family night! We always get together with my husband’s family, go trick or treating with the kids, have wine, chocolate, great conversation… what could be better?
To me, Halloween is all about kids. As an apartment-dweller, I don’t tend to get trick-or-treaters, but I’m lucky enough to have friends who live in kid-filled neighborhoods who let me come visit so I can ooh and aah over the costumes. I’ll be manning the candy dish at a friend’s house so they can take their little ones out and I can play the wacky, yet doting, neighbor. Come on by – I’ll get you all hooked up.
My younger two children still trick or treat. So we’ll join with a friend whose son also has autism and make the trek from house to house. Last year I put Bella into a wagon and pulled her around. But I dumptrucked her right onto her bottom off the curb. This year I think I’ll let her walk…
Deb Tawna just misread what Deb Sarah wrote and thought she said she’d be spending Halloween “passing out.” She was momentarily concerned for the health of the unborn baby.
Deb Tawna would also like to point out that no matter how many times you do it, the barfing jack-o-lantern never stops being funny.
