Farm Fresh

After many trips back to the drawing board, "Gumdrop" (so named for the shape of his head) is finally finished and ready to taunt the neighborhood. Of all the displays I've done since we moved here, this one has gone through more design changes than any of them. In fact, the only part of the entire display that remains true to the original idea is the can that has been beautifully painted by Melissa, who also gets credit for selecting and carving the head. (Thanks Love!)
Here's a short video of it in action. Sorry if the camera's a bit shaky. I had to move around a bit while recording to trigger the motion detector.

I've also set up the twins from last year's Terror Totter on the porch to help set the mood.

Just like last year's display, this year's has been set up just in time for what may be the first snowfall of the season. I'm hoping the can will provide at least a little protection, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
