Our display is animated with computer controlled lights set to music, so still photos only capture some of the experience. At some point in the future, we will have videos from our 2009 show posted on this page. Until then, please enjoy some photos from our display, and you can watch some videos of our 2006 display (which was the last one we have posted videos for) once you are finished.
Here are some views of the front of the house, which features our Peanuts Nativity Pageant display. One of the new additions for 2009 was video that plays along (and synchronized to) the music and lights. The screen to the left of the Nativity plays these videos. It is also used to show speech bubbles for our Linus Shares the Gospel display, which up until this year used an old Kodak slide projector. Also new this year are LED icicle lights, which gives the roof a more "icy" look than the standard ones we've used for many years.
Here for more information on the "Remember Jesus" sign.

Our larger side yard contains what we call the "Toyland" area of the display. This area received many new LED lights, as we continue to switch the display over to LED's each year:
As seen in several of the pictures below and elsewhere on this page, Toyland also contains our large Merry Christmas sign with the string of "Big Bulbs" below it. These, as well as many other elements in the display, are all controlled by the computer to respond to the music.
Our son William makes a cameo as we take the pictures of the fence which stretches along the side of our property:
We keep a blog of thoughts as the year progresses. Click Here to view the log for 2009.
