We love pumpkins and we tend to collect them throughout the month of October. We bought our first pumpkin a couple of weeks ago, and Mattie Windsor promptly named it “Cherry.” The name Cherry hung around for about 24 hours until Mattie Windsor changed it to “Mary,” and for some reason, Mary stuck. So when we got a second pumpkin a few days later, Mattie Windsor immediately called it “Mary” too.

Now each time she sees her pumpkins, Mattie Windsor exclaims, “My Marys!”

If only I understood the logic of a two and a half year old.  Mary October!
