Emily's Birthday (Part 1)

Today was Emily's 14th birthday. In fact, as I write, she would just have been born (9.30pm). I can't believe my "baby" is 14 already - the years have certainly flown by. 
This morning she came downstairs to presents waiting to be opened.

And the obligatory helium balloon ;o)
 She had breakfast first but was then happy to get stuck in and start with the present opening.
 Her list had consisted of a number of books - Emily would be the first to tell you that she's a total bookworm! - and some DVDs.
 This was what she had really been hoping for and it had been ordered from America
 Her very own Harry Potter wand ;o)  Emily loves Harry Potter, has read the books numerous times and seen all the films.
 It even came with it's very own pouch 
 Manga books are another of Emily's favourites though this year she'd also asked for a number of the "My Story" historical novels (eg. Tudor Stories for Girls, My Royal Story : Victoria; War Stories for Girls, etc.).
By the time she'd finished opening her presents she had quite a pile to take upstairs with her.
