2011 Christmas Tree Extravaganza

We finally got around to putting up our Christmas tree last night.  And we did it under 4 minutes!  Impressive, huh?  Check it out here:

Here’s how we did it:

I like to keep things for the boys to enjoy when they are grown up.  So, I put up the camera on the stand in the living room.  Hit record.  Once the boys had gone to bed, I uploaded the footage onto my computer.  In iMovie, I sped up the scene by 2000% (it actually took us 1 hour 5 minutes to put up and decorate).  I muted the audio, and put one of my favorite bands as the soundtrack – Bela Fleck and the Flecktones “Sleigh Ride.”

The boys have already watched it 5 times this morning.  They kept saying, “We are good helpers…we are going really fast.”

Hope you enjoyed it!  Make some memories with your family this year!
