In a country town in the 1930's. A young boy named, Buddy lived in a home with his female older cousin. On a late November day she looked outside and knew it was the day to make 30 fruitcakes. She sends her fruitcakes out to businesses and other people including the president, for a christmas gift.
When they decide they are going to make fruitcakes, they remember that they do not have a great amount of money and need to find more. Counting penny by penny them come up with an amount.
We did it, Buddy!!
Together they come up with only $12.99 to buy all of the ingredients. They are both wondering how only $12.99 will get them all of the things they need.
They take a run to the store and buy things such as pineapple, cherries,vanilla, ginger, raisins, and walnuts.
As they get home they realize that only, $12.99 was plenty enough money to make 30 fruitcakes for businesses around.
As they send their fruitcakes in the mail, after a long day, they both realize on what a great time they had together just like every other past year.
