Graham's Thanksgiving Pumpkin Bars

I bet everyone is crazy getting the Thanksgiving dinner prepared.  I am as well so I put my son Graham on Pumpkin Bar duty.  These are always a crowd pleaser (NOT HEALTHY) and the kids LOVE them.  To go along with the usual Pumpkin pies and to decorate the dessert table at the same time, we decided to do this.  Hope you all have a GREAT THANKSGIVING!
 Put 1 small can pumpkin into a bowl
Beat in 4 eggs
Add 1 cup oil
And 2 cups sugar
Mix all together

Add 2 cups flour
 2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together and put into a greased 10X15 inch pan
Bake in a preheated oven on 350 for 30 minutes
Cool and frost with the following:

3oz. cream cheese (Softened)
6 tablespoons soft butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk
2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
Mix together until smooth and frost cake.

Decorate however you would like and serve.  Can be made up to 2 days in advanced then wrapped.
