The Thanksgiving Desserts

We've been doing Thanksgiving with the same general group of people on the Cape for about six years now.  One year, we actually ended up with just about a dessert for every person attending.  Since then, it's been a bit of a joke, can we actually have a dessert per person?  I think it's really just because everyone in my family and extended family likes to bake.  This year we had some new additions, like the chocolate bread pudding (thanks Ben!) and sweet potato pie.

My brother Dave always comes up with a magnificent dessert that he blesses us with.  This year it was rice pudding baked in a sugar pumpkin.  That way, you could scoop out the rice pudding and tender pumpkin filling.  Yum!
