Our display is animated with computer controlled lights set to music, so still photos only capture some of the experience. Unfortunately, we never created videos for 2007 so please enjoy some photos from our display, and you can watch some videos of our 2006 display once you are finished..
One difference this season over the last season is SNOW. The first weekend the display was up, we got a lot of snow (last year we had no snow at all until New Year's Eve). The snow definitely gives the display a Christmassy feel, although it does make it look messier in some ways (like the icicle lights which blew up on the roof then got held down by snow...)
new for 2007 is an computer-controlled dancing arch fence made out of LED
lights. You can read more about this arch and how it was constructed on this
year we moved our Kneeling Santa with Christ Child display next to the
house. We get a lot of questions about this display-- it is meant to help
remind others of the real reason we celebrate this holiday season.
new addition to Toyland this year is this Snoopy Santa blowmold. We've
been searching for one of these for some time (the company that made them is no
longer in business) and this year, a friend of ours and fellow local decorator
was able to find one for us at an auction.
year a family in the neighborhood donated four new inflatables to our display at
the end of the season. Making its debut this year right on the corner is
this Rudolph Snow Globe. Unfortunately it was a bit frosted inside when
this picture was taken.
is one final view of our display for now. Here you can also catch a
glimpse of our new LED Flag on the right side. More information about this
item and how it was constructed are on this page.
Planning for the display happens year round-- and we keep a blog of thoughts as the year progresses. Click Here to view the log for 2007.
