Happy 30th Birthday Nicolette!!
So Nicolette joined the 30 club! For her birthday we went out to one of Nicolette's favorite restaurants which is called Iron Chef. It is such a cool place to go.. the guy who cooks our food does it right in front of you but before he does he puts on a show for you. There are about 6-8 people sitting at the table which surrounds the flat stove that he cooks on . The first thing he does is takes your order and then he starts flipping his cooking utensils around and throwing them up and catching them, lighting things on fire and things like that. It is really a cool thing to see, I wish I had a video clip of it to show. Anyways, we ordered filet mignon steak, lobster, rice and shrimp. I don't normally eat steak but I can see why filet mignon is so expensive! That was without a doubt one of the best meals I've had in a long time. If anyone ever wants to go, make sure to call me first! Earlier in the day Grace and I had filled out birthday cards for Nic. I asked Grace if she wanted to give the cards to mommy and she said yes.. When she got upstairs to give her the cards she opened the door and started singing happy birthday to her before she gave her the cards. It was so cute. I was not expecting her to sing and did not tell her to do it. She just does the most awesome things. After dinner we were planning on going out to see Avatar in 3D at the Imax theater but ended up going home because we were a little tired and the show was a late start. (see, those are the things that happen when you get OLD) I hope that Nicolette had a great birthday and that she knows how much we love her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! ~01/21/10
