    My daughters and I worked on this one and had a lot of fun. We plan on making some changes to the eyes and keeping this around for next year too!

    My daughters and I worked on this one and had a lot of fun. We plan on making some changes to the eyes and putting the motion sensor and transmitter in a project box so we can put it on the porch. We are keeping this around for next year too!
