A Little Catch Up...

A lot has happened since I last blogged. Terrible tornados swept through the South last Friday. Sadly they hit really hard in Clinton where we used to live and where Aaron's parents and grandfather live. They are all ok and didn't have a lot of damage and we are very thankful. Our old townhouse didn't fair so well:

During the bad weather on Friday, though unrelated, my laptop died. Sob! I knew the end was coming and backed up pictures, but it will be missed.

Due to the bad weather, the dress rehearsal for my first round of recitals was canceled. Needless to say this made me pretty nervous about how the recital would go on Saturday. All my little dancers did great though. This is one of my kindergarten classes. Aren't they just so cute?!

Today is Aaron's birthday...Happy Birthday Ronnie!!! We celebrated tonight by using a Living Social deal that we had bought to Mugshots Grill...the burgers were delish. Later he opened some presents...

and then I made this:

Banana Nutella Stromboli

I posted a pic of this recently on facebook and promised I would post the recipe. It is so terribly easy that you really don't need a recipe, but here it is finally:

Banana Nutella Stromboli

You will need a banana, a pizza crust, and a jar of nutella (optional: 1 T butter and a little sugar)

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2) lightly grease a cookie sheet
3) roll out the crust and then spread some nutella down the middle

4)top it with sliced banana
5) cut the sides with scissors into inch wide strips then criss cross them over the center. Optional step here is to melt a little butter and brush it on top and then sprinkle with a little sugar. This just gives it is nice sparkly and crunchy top.

6) Bake for 15 or so minutes and then slice and enjoy!!

Yay! Gracie, it looks AMAZING! You are such a good wife to my brother, I love all the things you do for him. His present stack looks great. :)

So sad about your lappy! Mine gave up the ghost a few months ago, too.

Your recital kiddos looked darling. Thanks for the informative catch up blog. Miss you guys.

The banana stromboli thing was great! I might even have a piece for breakfast tomorrow.

Susie made my birthday pretty special. She is a sweetie, and I love her lots.
