We finished Copeland Christmas 2010 "The Garage"

Over the past three days we really put a lot of work into the garage! I'm pleased to say last night it was finished!!!

Here is a neighbor making a little elf dangle off the workbench with some little presents in his hands.
Here's the same helper placing snow to perfectly hide every single wire.

Here we are late last night putting all the village people, cars, trees, and accessories into the village building scene. It was so much fun to do this with kids because they know exactly which house each person should be in front of. There is a reason why each of the little accessories was placed in its spot. It's precious.

Got a lot on the porch done!

We are hoping to be done by Sunday, so we spent all day working on the garage and porch. In the garage we did the North mountain and in the middle of the train. In the porch we did the USA tree, the tinsel hot air balloon corner and the silver trees. My Mom, Matthew, and Allie came over to help today and I just can't imagine that we could have done it without them! More photos to follow.

Copeland Christmas Custom Gator Outdoor Lighted Display

Our good friends rescued this old gator wireframe from a marina out near Lake Okeechobbee. They refurbished it and strung it with orange and blue GATOR lights! What a great gift!....thank you Dennis, Joely, Danielle, and Chris!!!

It's little things like this that make this whole Christmas display worth laboring over each year!

Added new items to the Candy Mountain Scene

I added a few items from our recent trip to the Christmas Palace to our Candy Mountain Scene. The fence and the peppermint path has been added. Now I just need to find a "charlie" to stick in the scene.

2010 Copeland Christmas Set Up

Here's a short video of what we did today with the dining room. We built a Diseny scene. The song is a 2010 Copeland Christmas favorite. We are glad to see this song getting some commercial airplay this year. Can't wait to see the house lights blink to this song ;)
