Shelly Hegsted's Pumpkin Squares

Ok- so I need to get more recipes from this gal, because she knows how to cook! Shelly is one of my mom's really good friends and she just walked right out of the "Little House on the Prairie" Books. She is just a down-to-earth "pioneer stock" gal and she knows how to make a meal. I did get this recipe from her that I love though, and I thought it was fitting for the time fo year! (You should see the recipe card- it is totally covered in Pumpkin!) :)
