Wow! You all look radiantly beautiful. What a good-looking family, and what an exquisite purple dress.


I'm crying over here. You guys look so great. I'm so happy for you.

I am crying here too. Best day for an extraordinary Family.


I have tears brimming! You all look wonderful! Look at what a lovely young lady Steph is! And Julie's dress rocks! (And Pete is adorable in his jacket and tie!) And you and Andy! These are great pictures, Karen!

(I'd venture to guess you're holding your arm like that because your Spanx was holding you hostage!) :o)


I've been thinking about you all day! So glad that it was wonderful- you guys look great and so happy! Congrats to Steph! Mazel Tov!


Look at all those beautiful, smiling faces! Wonderful.


Congratulations! Mazel tov! :)


What a wonderful event--you all look beautiful, even your arm. :)It just looks like you were trying to hold it in an awkward position.


What a beautiful young woman Steph is (as is her mother!) Mazel tov! (and congratulations, too!) 8^D


I'm glad y'all had a wonderful, special day. I'd comment that maybe you won't worry so much next time...but I've been following you too long to believe it. :)

Congratulations to you all.


What a beautiful family! I'm so glad it all went so well. Looking forward to hearing all about it!


mazel tov!

So glad it all went well! The pics are great and we can't wait to hear about how it all went down!


Yay! You all look absolutely gorgeous and so happy! Congratulations!


Everyone looks like they are glowing!!!!

Mazal Tov!


Mazel tov (again)!! Your family is gorgeous and even though I know I saw a pic of Steph recently I am blown over by how grown-up she looks.

Hooray for perfect days! Enjoy it, Mama -- you all worked hard! :)

mazal tov! (I am a lurker and relatively new reader, but couldn't resist!)


Glad you had such a wonderful & happy day! I also kept thinking about it & wondering how it was going. It's really great that you were able to relax and enjoy every moment.


All the contemplation, planning and practice ... wow! Totally worth it. Is it appropriate for a Gentile to say "mazal tov"?

Mazel Tov! Just think- one down, two to go!


You guys look fantastic! That purple dress is lovely. Congrats on a major accomplishment!


Great! Glad everything went well. You all look fantastic!


So glad that everything went SO well! Beautiful pictures!

Karen, you have such an amazing life. I hate to say I'm jealous, but I am. Wish I could find my way to such a life. Family, a beautiful home and a rewarding career were my dreams that did not come to fruition. You are so blessed. I am truly glad your big event turned out so great. Btw, I thought Bat Mitzvah's were for young boys? Has it become more modernized to include girls, or was I just misinformed? Just curious. What a beautiful family you all make :)

Stephanie Weishaar

cinnamon toast and mazel tov and mazel tov and mazel tov! It sounds like the many months of planning and fretting (not to mention studying) paid off nicely. I'm looking forward to your fabulous recap once you've finished basking in the glow of Steph's special weekend. Thanks for sharing a great reason to smile...especially for those of us under 3 feet of snow!


What wonderful pictures! Everyone looks so happy and youthful! Congratulations!!


You all look lovely. I am so glad such a special time turned out to be perfect. Don't you love when all the planning and the worrying comes together!


Great stuff! Mazel tov to Steph!

I am always amazed at how well those kids do with all the singing and talking in front of all those people. And at one of the most self-conscious ages of their lives! I can't imagine having had to do that at that age! The video of my husband's never fails to crack me up, what with the changing voice and all. :-)


Mazel tov!


Gorgeous family, wonderful occasion. Mazel tov!


Such a great culture. Thanks for sharing with those of us who don't know much beyond first communions and confirmations. And does that yarmulke/tie combination match your dress? I love it. Congratulations!


Belated Mazel Tov! Would Steph like to come down to NC with all her knowledge and be a consultant for our upcoming production of Fiddler on the Roof which "stars" (I use that term VERY loosely) exactly one-half a Jew (my daughter).
