4 Years

Today is our four year anniversary! We started the fun out yesterday by taking Lily and Ella to watch a movie at the dollar theater. Ella loved it! It was her first time to the movie theater, or "big movie" as she calls it. The traditional 4th year gift is fruit and flowers. I had no idea what to do for Joe that had to do with fruit and flowers! I bought myself a mixer attachment for my kitchen aid, that sort of has to do with flour right? ha..so after googling a bit I decided to make Joe one of those edible arrangements. To have one delivered is like $80 bucks! So when my parents got here this morning we headed to walmart and got all the fruit and then my Mom and I assembled this..I think it turned out pretty good! Then I took it to Joes work and he was pretty surprised! ha, it was a slow day at work so a lot of people had gone home by the time I took it up so I don't think he was too embarrassed by it!


Joe surprised me with flowers and balloons
Then we all went to Tepanyaki for dinner!
We had never been before and when they brought us the soup we were all like, uh there aren't any spoons..so I told the waitress we didn't get spoons, and she said, "no no, you drink!" ha so we drank! It was really pretty tasty soup!

Ella loved all the food
this is her all happy before the guy started cooking at our table...
He formed the rice into a heart for our anniversary
When he first started cooking he put tons of....well i'm not sure what it was but it was flammable! on the table, and then proceded to light it on fire...it made a HUGE fire on the table..Ella screamed and screamed.. she was SO scared of it. The rest of the dinner she was on the look out for more fire, and if she saw it she tried to dive under the table!

This was a small fire..he made a tower of onions and then made like a candle out of it..
then he torched it!
Doing tricks with eggs..this one eventually landed in his hat! When he was all done cooking he went around the table and threw a shrimp to everyone to catch in their mouths. (the wierd thing about this restaurant is that you sit with people you don't know..but it wasn't that weird I guess..) The two other people sitting at our table didn't catch theirs, the first one he tossed at my dad hit him right in the eye! He caught it on the second try..my Mom and Ella hid from the one he tossed at them, and then Ella was mad because he threw something at her, ha. I caught mine first try while holding Lily, skill I know, I don't eat shrimp so I handed it down to my Dad..ha, Joe caught his first try also, and his second one too!
Ella LOVED the food
(the meat was soo good! My Dad even said it was one of the best steaks he'd ever had,
and he has eaten a lot of steaks!
)
All of us with our cook
