If You're Happy And You Know It

Well, my little sponge of a darling daughter has been learning many many new things. I have a whole post to go over what she has learned in the last month, but haven't gotten around to actually writing it all down. So, as a teaser, here is one of Abigail's new "tricks". Just like our puppy! Yay!

Here she is with her Uncle Casey. I love watching Abby learn from other people, not just me.

And here is an 'action' shot of Abby and her new game. She claps for herself all the time. When she crawls up a few stairs, when she finds the dog dish, when she finds me or an open dishwasher. She is just so happy to clap. All you have to do is sing her silly "clap your little hands" song that Weston made up for her.

More to come later, but for now, Number 2 in the series:
Artichoke Salad
1 bag of romaine or spinach salad leaves
1 can of olives
1 8 oz can of artichoke hearts, chopped
8-10 oz of chopped mozzarella cheese cubes
8-10 oz of chopped cheddar cheese cubes

1 clove garlic, chopped
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
1/2 t dried thyme
1/4 c asiago cheese
3/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c red wine vinegar
1/4 c balsamic vinegar
1/4 t salt
1/8 t fresh ground pepper

Combine dressing ingredients in a blender and blend well. GENTLY toss salad mixture with salad dressing and chill. Serve to soon to be delighted guests.
serves 8-10ish people.

Oh, my, gosh! She is getting so big! I can't wait to see her in just a few weeks in Seattle! It's so crazy just seeing pictures, it's really easy to see how much she's growing up! You're doing such a great job raising her!
