Leslie and I dressed as woodpeckers for the 2003 NYC
SoHo Halloween parade. The costumes were made by my sister Amy, who
makes a different bird costume for my niece and nephew to wear each
Halloween. In 2003, six of my family members flew up Broadway in New
York's spectacular Halloween parade.... my niece and nephew as
pigeons, my brother-in- law as a harpy eagle, my sister as a marsh
hawk, and my mom dressed as a wood duck.
