  1. That is too cool. I like your garage floor tiles.

When we got home I spent another 3 hours cleaning the work shop in preparation to start the project. Very excited.
  3. He looks great. They will also make great Christmas photo opportunities for your guest since they are tall and near the stairs.
  4. This will be our first year to try animation in our Christmas display and would love some advice.

  7. Here are a few more pictures including a close up of the trees. The trees are made up of 4 different pieces of wood and bolted to a fence post. I made the sleigh so that it is strong enough for people to get in and take pictures.
  8. My wife and I are always excited to build our next Christmas display. This is the train that we added to our display last year. We have a good friend who is an artist that draws our ideas out and then we do the cutouts, paint and build them. We used a fog machine on a timer to make the engine smoke.
