12/9/13 - If you come by tonight I am currently having some delay issues in the software. I am working to remedy the problem but currently there are very long pauses between the songs.

12/25/12 - I apologize to those that came by tonight and found the show was not running. Upon returning home, I discovered that my computer had crashed. Therefore the show was not running.

Merry Christmas!! 12/22/12 - We should be back up and ready to go for tonight. Please check our schedule.

12/10/10 - If you came by during the first hour of the show tonight I apologize as I just realized that several sections of lights were unplugged so I'm sure the show looked a little "strange". Everything is back up and going now.
11/28/10 - We are up and running. Please check our schedule page for show times.
12/24/09 - I apologize for not having things back up and going yet. It has been a crazy week. The bottom of our road is still a little messy. Plus with the snow banks on either side, it is tough for two way traffic right now. I plan on running the lights into January - especially since we lost some time due to the storm. So, check back after Christmas as I will post the updated schedule. In the mean time, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!
12/21/09 - Sorry I was unable to update the schedule earlier - we just got our power back on. We will probably not have the show running tonight as we are still a little busy getting things back to "normal" - plus not to many people will be able to make it up the road. Please check back and hopefully we will be able to get things back up starting tomorrow night.
12/18/09 - Due to the heavy snow, we will not be running the show tonight. Please be safe.

12/21/07 - Just in time for Christmas. A few NEW features have been added! The Foxhouse has begun to talk. Thats right, the Foxhouse has come alive and wants to share a few things with you. She even needs YOUR help with part of the show. Come on by and hear for yourself.
12/16/07 - I apologize for the hiccup tonight. The wind pulled a few of my anchors up. However, I was able to get them fixed. The show is back up and running.
12/10/07 - I added the above video showing one of the songs from this year. Make sure to stop by as the are several more songs in the show.

11/24/07 - I finally have the show (for the most part) up and running. I have added a few new features this year - one being a large tree to the right of the house. I am also still working on one feature that I hope to have going before Christmas. I will keep you posted. Please check the schedule page as I will be posting dates and times shortly. You can also go to the Directions page to see were we are located and get driving directions. Hope you have a chance to come by.
12/06 - After much complaining from my three sons for not putting up Christmas lights in 2005, I decided to put some up this year. However, being the gadget person that I am, I could not just "put" up lights. I had to do something a little different.
After a little planning, I decided to automate and sync the lights to music. I had originally planned to do a bunch of songs, however, I wound up with six for this year (the programming takes more time than I planned for).
Above is a video I shot showing one of the songs. I apologize about the quality - it is not the best but it will give you an idea. I will try to get a better video on the site soon.
If you did not get a chance to come by and see the lights this year, I am sure to have them going again in 2007 (hopefully with a few new additions). I will also utilize this website to add a schedule for the showings. This way, you can check and make sure we are up and running prior to driving by.
