The Nutcracker software program

In March 2012, I decided to write a program to animate RGB Christmas lights. I called this software program, the Nutcracker. This software is open sourced and is available free to anyone to use. It runs on Windows XP,7,8. Linux and MAC

The Nine Foot Nutcrackers

My wife, Lilia, is from the Ukraine. She decided to have a Christmas party on Dec 3,2011. She invited all of our Russian friends. The theme of the party was the Nutcracker. My twin 10 yo sons, Dennis and Alexei, asked if we could create two large nutcrackers for their mom. We told my wife to stay out of the garage for 3 weeks. She was going crazy trying to figure out what the secret project was.
We revealed the project to her on Thanksgiving. She was amazed. All materials for the Nutcrackers were purchased at Home Depot.

Styrofoam, Plywood, PVC pipe = Nutcracker Soldier.

Dec 2012. Wow my twin boys have grown!

If you compare the two pictures you can see some of the details missing as we were just finishing building them. Gold braid, belt buckle, gold cuffs, braids on the boots, swords, hair (used a white rug from Walmart), finished painting the drums.
