Junior Prom

Many high schools have one prom where both juniors and seniors can invite guests.  But at Williamsville East, they keep them separate- calling the junior prom “JDD” or junior dinner dance. The school colors are red and yellow with a mascot of a “flame.”  Since there are 3 high schools in the district- north, east and south (not terrifically original but actually quite helpful in understanding their location within the district boundaries), East goes by the letter “e”.  Now you know why there is a flaming “e”…

The box step has particular sentimental meaning to me.  When our eldest was still quite little, my husband taught her how to do the box step.  I can still picture it: her feet on top of Pete’s, arm in arm, walking and talking through the motions.  They giggled and swirled and made exquisite memories.  Tori will always be a papa’s girl.  She loves that man.  Rightfully so.  This cookie is homage to the simple but sweet footwork of the box step.



Be my Bridesmaid?

Something old, new, borrowed, blue; and now I need you!  The trend is to ask your bridesmaids to be in the wedding party with a cute card or with something clever.  A cookie is the sweetest way I know to get across any message.  Bagged and tagged adorable.  OR… you can use these cute dress cookies as place cards at a bridal shower or some such celebration!
