    Our witch Hagetha has become tired of standing out in the wind and rain for a month every year and has demanded that I build her a shelter.

    Talia is always challenging for me. I got creepy down, no problem. But she wants to be pretty AND creepy. She also gets something in her head and don't let it go. Think it was about a year ago, she had chosen her costume for last year, and we saw this on Faceoff. She said right...
