Pumpkin Bread

Besides the usual manners rules, my mom taught us to always, always write thank-you notes and to always, always bring a hostess gift. So, we try to never show up empty handed unless, come to think of it, we're staying with our parents. Whoops.

I knew Alex really likes pumpkin bread, so I whipped some up to bring with us to Indiana. The recipe just happened to make two loaves, so we got one for ourselves too!
