Ragamuffin Parade

This year’s Ragamuffin Parade featured the debut of Tristan and William’s costumes for 2008. Tristan long ago decided that he wanted to be Captain Hook and that his little brother should be Peter Pan. Dad joined in by donning a crocodile hat and an enormous alarm clock. Mom volunteered to be TinkerBell, but decided that the temperature was far too close to freezing to wear fairy wings.

This picture was taken by the town photographer…and we are looking forward to seeing our segment on local public accesss television.

Pumpkin Blaze

The Blaze is a pretty cool annual event that takes place at Van Courtland Manor in Croton on Hudson. They put out literally thousands of illuminated pumpkins around the old manor house. You really need a tripod to take decent pictures. The boys enjoyed it…and so did Aunt Patty and Uncle Skull.
