I have made the fruitcake cookies and am planning to make mom's fudge.
I'm planning on getting through this first Christmas without my mom by starting some new traditions. We've been invited to a Christmas party on Christmas Eve and I'm excited about that!
And how cool will it be to see one of my favorite Christmas movies at The Robinson Film Center on a Saturday afternoon with my husband! We've got our tickets already and will go out and eat afterward.
After Christmas we will go visit the cutest grandson in Texas.
I think that's going to be my plan - at least for this year. Some new traditions and some old....just keep swimming.

The Iowa Lottery is having a George and Mary Bailey look-alike contest! It's A Wonderful Life is right up there with A Christmas Story as my all time favorite Christmas movie. It used to be that you couldn't escape the movie during the holiday season but because of complicated copyright issues, it is now aired just twice during the holiday season. For that reason, I had to go out and buy my own copy.
The Iowa contest sounds like fun, if you look like Donna Reed (who was from Iowa) or Jimmy Stewart! You could win $500 and have your picture on the Iowa Lottery website if you're a winner.
