Rotten Pumpkin, Gross!

Bye, bye, pumpkin!  
Well, it finally happened.  We had to say goodbye to the last of our Halloween pumpkins.  This one outlasted the others by a good six months, but nine months after we blew out the candle in our Jack-o-lantern, we bid a fond farewell to our last uncut pumpkin sitting on the window ledge.  I was sad to see him go since he had lasted so long, but Violet enjoyed seeing the rotten underbelly of the pumpkin.  I believe she yelled, "Squishy!  Gross!!" when she saw it.  Then she went to run in her "meadow", which is what she calls the four-foot square of clover growing in our front yard.  Life goes on...
