Thanksgiving Day


My three nieces are coming to visit for Thanksgiving. My neighbor came over and wanted to know how old they are. I told her that the product of their ages is 72.
"That's not enough information for me to figure out how old they are," she complained.
I offered that the sum of their ages is my street address.
"But that's still not enough information."
After a moment's thought, I added that my eldest niece loves pumpkin pie. She then knew how old the girls are,...but was afraid to ask their names. How old are my nieces?
