The Contest!

Before we get to the contest, here's some knitting for your viewing pleasure. Presenting the socks for my Mom's birthday present - finished.
Fiesta Boomerang Yarn in the "Glacier Mist" colorway. Purchased at The Loopy Ewe.
Needle size - US #3, Addi Turbo
Method - Magic Loop
Pattern - Wool Girl's Waterfall from the first sock club installment.
Started - sometime in November 2007
Finished - 11/29/07

Here's picture of the one of the socks on her foot! They fit her perfectly! Yeah! Happy Birthday, Mom!

We also indulged in a little bit of Birthday Cake (and ice cream, of course).
Chocolate Fudge cake
Peanut Butter Icing
Red/Green Sugared Sprinkles, added by DD #2.
Baked fresh, late this am, by little old me.
Served with Vanilla/Chocolate Ice Cream. YUM! YUM!

The part you've been waiting for.......THE CONTEST!
Your part - just submit your answers to the Christmas trivia questions, and if you submit the correct answers, you'll be entered to win the prize. Don't start sweating, they are pretty easy questions, and Google can help you! I've even given some hints. What's the prize, you ask - A $25 gift certificate to......

Wait for it......................

THE LOOPY EWE! And some other small goodies - who knows what will be added. To enter, please please post your answer to the two questions listed below. I'm asking that you enter only once, please! Correct answers will be entered into a drawing. I'll select the lucky winner using a random number generator. You will have until this Friday, December 7th at 12:00pm EST to enter! Good luck, and Happy Holidays!

We are traveling a small distance (in the very near future) to see a live performance of my favorite Christmas movie. It's actually considered to be a musical. Critics sometimes complain that it's got a very predictable plot, but I love it just the same. The name of the movie/musical is also a popular Christmas song - made famous by one of the four stars in the movie. Question #1 - Name the movie!
Question #2 - Name the four stars of the original movie (in any order).
Hint - The title of the movie contains 2 words, and the first word is a color.....

That's all I'm saying..........Good luck!

I hate to be un-original but Wikipedia told me the same thing - The movie is White Christmas (love...) and the 4 headliners are Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen...and extra bonus, Vera-Ellen was born Vera Ellen Westmeier Rohe. :)

Enjoy it - what a magical evening it will be!
