Happy Birthday, Emily!

Yesterday we celebrated Emily's 14th birthday. It was very, very... zebra.


She received so many wonderful gifts - and there was definitely a strong zebra theme. Right down to the socks on her feet:


And some really great things for her new room, like this cute zebra wall hanging, made by her sister:


More original art, by her little brother:


And of course, new bedding and curtains:


I felt like I had really splurged to make the curtains (the fabric cost around $40) until I found some almost identical zebra panels at Target that would have cost us $100 to buy.


I can't take credit for the bedding, though. It's from the Seventeen Posh Collection at JC Penney, where my older daughter works. It's absolutely perfect for Emily's room!


What a great day! Many thanks to her grandparents, aunties and uncles, brothers and sister for giving Emily such a fantastic birthday!
