1. I took one picture early on and then things got away from me.
2. There was an immense amount of food -- but we really like this kind of leftovers.
3. Plus, we have friends coming Saturday for turkey sandwiches.
4. People outnumbered dogs -- seven to six.
5. Willa made sure to sit in every available lap.
6. The cats were put outside to avoid an Incident.
7. There is such a thing as too much andouille sausage in the dressing.
8. It's kind of cool to have the kind of friends who, during the break between dinner and dessert, take their truck down to the pasture to get a load of composted manure to take home.
9. 7:30 seems early to go to bed... but by the time I bathe it'll be 8, which is only an hour from 9 ... and it's either that or lapse into a tryptophan coma on the sofa.
10. Goodnight, my blog friends -- I'm thankful for the way you all have enlarged my world!
