Pumpkin (I Hope we can get Through this Without a Potty Break) Bread

Three potty breaks, one change of clothing, and a Starburst later we finished up this lovely loaf of perfection. Moist, moist, moist is the only word to describe this scrumptious bread. No need to light a candle when your oven emanates the delicious scent of nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon.
