And a Good Time Was Had By All ...

She did great.

I was asked, nay instructed, to provide pictures. The link is the best I can do for now as I am still computerly challenged. The originals are residing on Mike's machine until I 1. learn how to navigate my new Linux partition or 2. get new windows disks. We are waiting for friends and relative to email stuff to us and, of course, for the professional photos.

There were no major mishaps, only minor, easily fixed ones. Like getting two blocks from home and realizing that she was wearing the wrong earrings. As I said, minor and easily fixed.

As far as I can tell, Squidette did not make a single mistake in her torah or haftorah portions and, despite the fact that she was shaking like a leaf while waiting her turn, she looked calm and poised while chanting.

The girls danced in the socks we provided -- cute anklets secured at K Mart -- and despite her fears and worries about not knowing what to do at a party, Squidette had a great time.

We are now in recovery mode and I'm heading down to do the laundry. Back to real life ...

The pictures were great! Squidette looked beautiful. I'm glad to hear all went well.

Looks like everyone had a good time at the party.

Now, time to decompress and maybe enjoy a piece of leftover cake?

Such a beautiful young lady. I am so glad that every thing went well and that you are all getting to rest today. Well... minus laundry, of course. ;^)

I couldn't have been more proud. We had such a good time (and I'm still full!)

Love to all!
