Happy Halloween from the Book of Yum- 2011

Toddler Yum and I worked together to make her costume for Halloween this year, and it was twice as fun. Last Halloween I had pneumonia so we didn’t do much at all. We made up for it this year by attending a Halloween pumpkin carving party, going out for drinks with our friends in our own costumes, taking Toddler Yum to Great America for their halloween event, taking Toddler Yum to a downtown trick-or-treating, and then taking her trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, all in one weekend. It was a little crazy, but watching Toddler Yum enjoy herself made it one of the best holidays in memory. I hope your holiday was just as fun and full of delight.

We never did get around to sharing the homemade butterfingers with Toddler Yum. Instead I made almond flour holiday cookies from Elana Amsterdam’s The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook in a Halloween cookie tin. Who needs packaged candy?

What are your Halloween traditions, and did you have a costume this year? Share in the comments!
