Izabella's 1st Birthday Celebrations Part 3

I was really excited for Izabella's birthday. I started planning on what treats to make, and oh man there were so many that I wanted to try. I decided to stick to fall flavors so I made some really yummy caramel apple cupcakes, caramel apples, and chocolate cupcakes. For Izzy's cake I did a pumpkin cake.
We did a really low key party since it was her first birthday and we wanted her to enjoy her friends and family so we just socialized for the first part and watched all of the kids play and enjoy the balloons.
After a little while we let Izzy open her presents, and I was so surprised to she her immediately pull at the tissue paper, and tare at the wrapping paper. She was on a roll. She got lots of goods, and we are so thankful for all of the love and support.
It was then time for the CAKE!! We lite the candle and sang happy birthday pulled the cake closer and she reached out and before Nate could stop her she reached out and tried to touch the candle. Needless to say it went all down hill. After I got her calmed down she was afraid that the cake was going to hurt her. So we decided to add some gold fish crackers to entice her into digging into the cake. I had it built up that she was going to tare right into it, but she would take a gold fish out and lick it. It finally ended with the cake on the floor, and Izzy dumping it on the ground and started to try and step in it. Silly girl.
Here is Zoey trying to clean up the frosting.

Izabella's 1st Birthday Celebrations Part 2

On her actually birthday we did a little celebrating that night with my sister and her little girls and Mimi. We figured she should open a few presents. It was so much fun to see the girls with Izzy, and Izzy fight her way in between them to play. They love each other so much.
My sister gave her this bee book that buzzes at the very end because Izzy would always play with it at her house. Along with this sesame street cell phone.
Here she is with the Kitchen that Mimi got her. All of the girls loved it especially Lila.
Nate and I got Izzy these pop up tents with tunnels that connect the. We figured that she would love it since she is a climber and loves to explore. Total Success!! She loved it!
Here are her invites to the party. I went with a pumpkin theme.
