The Headless Horseman Rides Again

The Headless HorsemanIt was a smaller crowd than usual, but we still had a great Halloween. The bridge didn't quite work out as planned. The 6 foot walls Blair had built were just too heavy and unstable and we had visions of them crashing down on small children, so we modified and Blair quickly built a mini-bridge that we struck with lights for the kids to cross over.

Our costumes looked great, but the theme was a bit of a bust as apparently today's kids are completely unfamiliar with the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane, and the Headless Horseman. Since Johnny Depp had done a movie some years back, we thought there might be some recognition, but no. ONE young boy said, "I read that book!" Frankly, I think the parents were more clueless than the kids.

Enjoy the pictures!
