I'm getting started later than I planned. Have unboxed checked and reboxed my lights (82 storage tubs) and this weekend finally starting high and working low. With some commercial projects taking center stage, I'm running way behind.

Mega tree base and pole is up and back down and back up. I had it up and when cranking down the light hub one of the wires from my 3 way star snagged and I had to take it back down and repair. I don't have a ladder that will reach 20+ feet. I have 1/4 of the lights on it and will finish it today and test it. Then on to the roof next week time permitting. One section at a time, test and move on.

I have been working inside the garage getting things ready and today officially started the installation. I have switched to all C6 LED's for the roof due to overall weight of having four different colors up there. I got the roof about 30% done today. Great start so far!!!

I started mine this weekend, but disguished them as green Halloween lights! The rest don't go up until the orange and purple come down.

I spent time today repainting the reindeer stands for my roof. When they are dry, they will be placed outside. Then the reindeer will be removed from hibernation and tested. I would like to get some lights around the windows up stairs... that means testing and some hanging today.

Have some sequencing to do also, but that is after homework is done.

I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but my Christmas tree by the road has outgrown my ability to decorate it with a pole. So I finally broke down and hired a bucket truck and operator to do the highest parts. Went okay, except for putting the male end of one group of lights at the Top of the tree! Below, we're checking to get an idea of how many years I have left before I move to the helicopter option.

I can't start until Thanksgiving :angry: . HOA rules. I am planning to have my garage cleaned out this weekend, so I can have everything ready for set-up. I also want to program a new song for this year but I don't know if I can do it in 3 weeks.(I love a good challenge)

You "can't put them up" or "can't turn them on" until Thanksgiving?
