Getting You Up To Date on 2010!

Ella Nicole was born August 12, 2010 weighing in at 7 lbs 11 oz. She has been a joy and an extremely good baby for that matter. And I think big brother will keep her!!! He loves her and is very protective of her!

A week later Joseph started K4 at Fort Dale Academy. He loves it!! It has been really good for him. I had mixed emotions but we are glad we did it now. He goes all day and absolutely loves Ms. Ellinor. He has made new friends and has grown up really fast on us!

A month following that we moved into the new house! We started building last December and finally moved in the end of September. It was a challenge with a small one and a rowdy 4 year old but we are so loving it! We love having all the room and the kids are doing pretty good upstairs in their rooms. And Joseph is loving the playroom!

I came back to work the second week in November. Needless to say life is quite hectic around our house and there is never a dull moment!! We throughly enjoyed Christmas even though it seems exhausting sometimes. Joseph managed to come down with the flu his first day of Christmas Break but the rest of us have not been sick yet!! So that is good news!!

I will try and do better in the new year but I can't make promises. I just can't get into the whole writing and blogging thing!!!

I wish you all a prosperous New Year!

P.S.  The pics are in reverse order....sorry!

Happy 4th of July!

We made one last beach trip as a family of 3 this summer!!  As my due date is fast approaching I figured this was the last time we needed to get this far away!  We have had a great weekend and hate to see it come to an end tomorrow when we head home.  But lots to do in little time!  We teamed up with the McAbee's for most of the weekend. I so enjoyed getting to hang out with them since we do not see them often.  The kids had so much fun playing, swimming, boating and eating together!  We all had a great time.  It was a very laid back weekend with eating, sleeping late, swimming, boating, but  most of all hanging out with great friends.  Below are a few pics from the past few days!  Hope you enjoy!

Update on the Ealum Fam!!

So what has been going on with us???  Well we are still working on the house that we hope to be in come early August.  I am now 31 weeks pregnant.  We have been to the beach several times.  And Baby boy celebrated his 4th birthday this past Sunday!!  Needless to say things have been quite busy around our house.  Jason and I will celebrate 7 years together on the 28th!  Where times goes I do not know. It seems like it goes faster and faster!  We went to the beach with my family last week and had a great time.  Joseph absolutley loves the beach and boating!  Boy am I glad considering I could be a beach bum in the summer!!  Baby girl( no firm name yet) is scheduled to be here mid August.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will be in the house.  But I am nto sure.  There are still several decisions to be made!!  It seems like summer is flying by and I hate that b/c it is my favorite time of year!  Here are a few pics!  I will try to get some of the birthday boy on here soon!  I just can't find the time to blog anymore!!

When I got off work on April 15th at noon, Joseph, Grammy and I loaded up and headed South!! We stopped off and shopped a little while before making it to the beach. I could not have asked for better weather. You would have thought it was summer already. Daddy and Granddaddy joined us on Friday as well as Joyce. We boated all day on Saturday and stopped and played in the sand. It has been such a wonderful weekend of good weather. great food, rest, relaxation and good company. I hate to see it come to an end. We will be headed home in the morning to get ready for work on Tuesday and then its off to Bonjovi in Nashville with the girls on Wednesday!!!!! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Long time, No post!!

So let's see its only been about 9 months or more since my last post. I really struggle to find the time to. I love to read everyone else's blog but I am just not much of a writer!! So let's see: we have been quite busy around our house the past few months. We signed a contract to build a house the first of December and found out about a week before Christmas we were expecting Baby #2!! Yes we are VERY excited just a bit shocked but God blesses us in the most amazing ways! Joseph has been so very excited since we found out and has been saying all along it was a girl. And yes he was right.....It's a girl!!!! Got a great checkup today. Can't believe I am almost 21 weeks. Wow where does the time go. Busy season has been very grueling this year so I guess that coupled with chasign a toddler has past the time quickly!! The house is coming along. They are working on getting it dried in and we are getting pretty close. The baby is due 8/22 and the house is scheduled to be ready around the same time. Baby Girl will come at least a week early b/c I am opting for another C-Section. Joseph also will start K4 at Fort Dale around 8/19. So needless to say it will be one busy August but so much fun!! So hopefully that is a brief catchup of where the Ealum's are. I will post a few recent pics for you. Hope all is well with you guys that actually read this!!
