I can hardly believe that my baby is 1. Everyone says that the time flies by and it actually does. I wanted to celebrate Isaac's first birthday for him but more for me and Steve actually surviving the first year. It was a birthday with a huge sigh of relief behind it. :o) PHEW!!!
It was a wonderful week all together. And the cowboy party last Saturday topped it all off. It was a wonderful day and we were surrounded by people who have been amazing throughout the past year. Those whom I don't think I would be functioning without.
I really focused on doing the party on my own and being the domestic mommy that I have seen online and on pinterest. O, Pinterest...what would I do without you!! Most of my things were pinterest inspired!!
I'm just going to post the pictures starting from the Wed - my boy's first birthday. His birthday was all about bikes and more bikes!
The day starts with a healthy breakfast...it's going to be an exciting day!!
One of Isaac's gifts was his first real bike ride equipped with his very own seat and helmet!! The tears soon dry up!
And we are ready to go. Steve looks like he is in a bit of pain..it was a short bike ride!
One of Isaac's gifts was his first bike. It is so cool and he loves it. We have been out twice a day since Wednesday!
Our Wednesday was a packed day and Isaac was exhausted. He loved the day and had several new experiences. It was such a cool day. And next was the party and on the Friday, my girlfriend, Claire came over and we baked and baked and baked. Claire does amazing cupcakes and cakes and turns her baking treats in to true works of art. She is sooo talented! She made all of the cupcake toppings by hand the night before...here are some close-ups!
The boots even have spurs on them...love the detail!
Claire working her magic!!
Cake pops in making. They are yummy - messy, but yummy. I got my recipe off www.lovefromtheoven.com and of course, Pinterest!
Our first completed cake pops!
Isaac and his bezzie, Jenson testing out the party area. They have so much fun together!!!
We are getting excited and had our pre-hoedown hoedown!
Claire's beautiful cupcakes.
Already tearing up the decorations! They didn't last long...the party hasn't even started.
Yee Haw! We are ready for some square dancin!!
The entertainment was a baby sensory class full of parachutes, beach balls, balloons, pom poms, and even a puppet show! It was adorable and the babies loved it!
The puppet show!
Some of the guests!
Isaac and all of his friends.
Steve got to enjoy some of the party after he finished grilling out!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY. After this photo was taken, I dropped the candle and almost set my child on fire. I'm tearing up laughing so hard right now at this very moment.
Enjoying his cake...I threw some strawberries on there to make it look healthy...but those got left.
WANTED! This was fun...everyone had their pictures taken and I am going to print them out and send the picture with the thank you cards.

Isaac's best friend - Jenson.
My homemade Hoedown sign!
And we are still partying the day after...the party never stops here!
It was a wonderful day. I will always remember our 1st birthday party. Yee haw to all the cowboys and girls who made our day so special. I'm already thinking about what to do next year!!! If this year goes as fast, it will be here before I know it! Isaac - thank you for an amazing year. You have made me a better person and have given me the most heavenly gift there is here on earth - motherhood. I love you deeply and may the party continue!
