After months and months of talking about it, I finally did it. I formatted the portable hard drive I purchased and backed up all my computers. Air five for all the tech geeks out there! Yah! Now, by "all my computers" I mean my dinosaur iMac G3 Graphite I've had since college, my current iMac and stuff I have on my iMac at work; thus compiling almost six days of music and over 3,000 photos. We're talking photos from when I first purchased my camera five years ago.

Now, with my current iMac, iPhoto stores all photos (obviously) and also has a feature similar to what "tagging" someone in a photo on Facebook does. However, iPhoto starts to recognize features and faces and will pull all the photos in your collection and have you verify the people in them. Blah, blah, ginger right? Anyway, after I had tagged myself in as many photos as it could find, I scrolled through the folder it created for me and got to see myself through the last five years. Suffice it to safe my reign as the least photogenic person is still in tact!

I wanted to share some footage I found that is worth reviewing:

Our kitchen… post-purchase, pre-remodel.
One of the obligatory trips to Wisconsin. I'm guessing Shawn wouldn't shut up?
The Jimmy… holding the first annual DeBoer family Christmas tree!
Not sure when this took place. I am sure we look hot.
DeBoer boys at Brad's wedding on Myrtle Beach. I wasn't there to photo-chaperone.
Norman's favorite spot… when he was still allowed on the sofa.
TY-Dizzle – he looks so young!
A strapping young David on his graduation day.
Pawny and Barb at Ryan's wedding. Shawn's "other" mother.
Miss Ainsley Lee… lookin' like a big ole bug.
Again… can't remember her being this little. Do remember that damn Elmo though!
Velvet ears, he has.
See if you can find the helpless Felix Norman is sitting on in order to keep the toy to himself.
Greatest vacation… greatest photo.
Evidence the camera loves me. Check out my hair. Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful.


  1. I love your blog! The photos are a great trip down memory lane and NORMAN is still "de man"!
