Happy Halloween from The Yum Household

Dear readers,
I was hoping to include a recipe for a dairy-free pumpkin pie soft cream with this post, but I’ve had the flu for a week and a half now and I just didn’t have recipe development in me. However, by some miracle, the one thing I did accomplish this week was Baby Yum’s first Halloween costume. Last year she was such a tiny little thing at three months that I just didn’t see the point of making her a costume. Of course I kicked myself afterwards when we stumbled onto a parent and baby Halloween-crawl in Boulder, Colorado and little Miss Yum was sadly costume-free. I did have a nice cozy wrap to wear her in, so she wasn’t entirely lacking in decoration, but still. This year I determined not to let the season pass us by. I went to Jo-ann’s, picked out a pattern to use in my version of a Ladybug, selected my fabric, and thought myself all ready. I was debating exactly what Halloween tot-fest to attend with Miss Yum when… the plague hit. Oh dear. I did manage to produce a costume, though, and instead of a tot-fest, well, we took Baby Yum down the aisles at Safeway where I endeavored (quite hard) not to cough on anyone. Then we came home and let Baby Yum frolic in the yard of our new house (yay!) and took these photos. I hope you enjoy them. I am banned from answering the door (the DH and Baby Yum will cover for me) but I’m hoping to live vicariously through any trick-or-treaters we get, even if I’m sidelined on the couch.

A Happy and gluten-free Halloween to you!
-Sea, Baby Yum and

  1. Awwwwww. SO sweet. I just can’t get over how much she looks like your dh (I bet you never hear that). The costume is perfect. And don’t worry about this year being less than you had hoped due to the flu. You have many years of making costumes and going to Halloween festivities ahead of you! Just wait until she starts having strong opinions about things like costumes. You’re in for a world of fun!

  2. Sorry you’ve been so ill, dear, but wow on this costume! You did very well. Baby Yum makes an adorable lady bug! :-)
