Welcome to the Moody Family Christmas
2016: Here comes the ...train!!!
Every year we try to come up with at least one new thing to keep the display fresh and new. This year we went ..perhaps.. just a tad .. maybe a little .. (ok .. A LOT) overboard. It seems that every year kids, young and old, come to see our display and for everything we have going on in the display, one of the things that gets the most ohhhhhh's and ahhhhh's was the little G-Scale train running around the base of the pixel tree.
So this year Sandra and I stepped it up a little. We decided to build our own train to run around the entire yard !!! Yep .. you heard it right .. around the whole yard... Unfortunately .. no.. its not a ride on train... but we really think you will like it. We have tried to document the process along the way and have uploaded pictures to the site. The pictures are somewhat (i use the term loosely) in order but for now, the gallery will have to do. It is by no means a literal "how-to". You can find the pictures in the "How-To" section of our web site.
Welcome to the Christmas web site of Bob and Sandra Moody. Christmas decorating has been a hobby for us for awhile. 2016 will be our tenth year and we would like to share the displays we have created. We live very active and busy lives and frequently our hobby gets put on the back burner but we try every year to add some new display element, theme or other idea to make our display unique and different.
We started with a a very simple static display and it has grown to over 25,000 animated, synchronized, computer controlled lights. As you look through the years you will see we had some nice displays, some VERY wet displays and yes, even here in Texas, a display with snow on it!
We added some video in 2010 to provide some memories and to show off some of our new display elements. Our Merry Christmas sign on the roof is 2' tall and about 35' long. 2011 brought in the yard grid. It's an 8x8 grid with 4800 lights on the ground. We also expanded our mini tree count from 12 to 28! 2012 brought a reworked MegaTree and train along with new signs, and a new group of RGB (Red,Green,Blue) DMX controlled North Poles. 2012 also brought a 75 MPH wind that tore up a lot of the display. 2013 saw the rebirth of our Merry Christmas sign using RGB pixels. The 2014 show rose to be a brighter, more colorful, more inspiring event... 2015 brings new elements to the roofline, porch and windows. Be sure check out our blog and see what we are up to !!
So please browse the site. If you want to know how we did it... tab over to the How-To's section. We hope you enjoy our display and the web site. Feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions or comments. We love to talk about this stuff!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY LIGHTS
