The Witches have landed!

These silly witches decided to park themselves on our fireplace mantel. We have Tabitha, Esmeralda, Gwendolyn and Glenda.

Isn't PicMonkey great!

This is our Family room, where we chill out every night and watch tv, along with our doggies.

Here, we have Tabitha, who has a lovely wort on her nose.  She has a companion by her side.

Esmeralda is the glam witch. I think she forgot to wipe off her facial mask.  Her face is all green.

Gwendolyn is next with her pumpkin treats.  Such a sweet face.

Last, we have Glenda, who always has her nose up in the air!

Mr. and Mrs. Punkin decided to join in.
