The Christmas Decorations

We spent some time putting up Christmas decorations tonight. I took the opportunity to use the remote timer I built last year for my old camera to shoot a time lapse movie of the process, which I included below. If you pay close attention you can see where we dropped (and broke) one of the ornaments, then swept it up a short while later.

  1. if only my popcorn and cranberry garland project was going as fast.

    for the record, when i went out the front door, i was hanging a wreath.

    the ornament breaking was a nice touch.

  2. Uh I think the video might be gone? Unfortunatly our tree took several days to get up so it would be a multi day time lapse, w/ the sun rising and setting.

  3. I reposted the video and updated the blog to point to the new version shortly after the original post. You may have seen a stale copy of the entry somehow. If you look at the actual web page the video appears correctly.

  4. the video is COOL!!!!! Looks like the ELVES did a GOOD job getting a nice straight, and lovely tree!!!!!! Can’t wait to see the finished results, with the CRANBERRIES AND POPCORN!!!!!! yummmmmm, hugs, nan

    I sent it to everyone I know. You are awesome.
    The tree is beautiful, I had to play it back again to see the Christmas bulb break, and saw Rob bring out the broom. It was great! LOVED IT.

    hugs, auntie
