Welcome to TheBlaums.com


TheBlaums.com is the virtual home of Greg, Krista, & Caroline Blaum.


The site has a pretty simple design; the menu on the left provides access to the different areas of the site. We use the site to provide information and show pictures of what's going on in our lives. Greg's blog can sometimes have some interesting tidbits of information on technology, sports, family, etc...


Please feel free to sign the Guestbook.

Announcements
Update - Monday, April 28, 2008
Wow, has it been that long since I updated this site? Well, in my defense, we've been pretty busy with the move, purchase of our new house and sale of our old house. Plus, Caroline is 2 years old now, and she keeps us very busy...  
Home for sale - Saturday, March 31, 2007
Since we're moving, our home is up for sale. Check it out!   read more...
MOVING! - Saturday, March 31, 2007
We've decided to move back to the Chicago area! Krista has accepted a job at a Chicago area hospital and Greg has accepted a new job within Microsoft. We're extremely excited to be moving back home and look forward to seeing friends and family much more often.  
Both blogs - Monday, April 10, 2006
Both Caroline's blog and Greg's blog have been getting updates and general posts about things of interest.  Make sure you keep your eyes on both.  Anything related to Caroline will be in her blog, and anything else will be in Greg's.  
Keep checking Caroline's blog - Wednesday, April 05, 2006

Technobabble = Greg's Blog - Monday, March 27, 2006
What used to be the old Technobabble page is now Greg's Blog.  Since I never really got around to populating anything in the technology-specific blog, I thought making it a generic one with technology stuff simply as categories might motivate me a bit more to actually post some content there.   read more...
First bath photos - Friday, March 24, 2006
The pictures from Caroline's first bath are now posted in her picture gallery.   read more...
Caroline blog updates - Wednesday, March 22, 2006

Illinois is screwed by officials - Saturday, March 18, 2006
In what may go down in history as one of the worst officiated games in NCAA tournament history, the officials hand Washington the win.  During the entire game, Washington got the benefit of every whistle and non-whistle.  Truly pathetic.  The refs need to be suspended and this game needs to be investigated.  I haven't been this disgusted by biased officiating in ages.  
More Caroline pictures - Friday, March 17, 2006
More pictures of Caroline's first week are now posted in her photo gallery.   read more...
Caroline updates - Friday, March 17, 2006
The first postings have been made to Caroline's blog with some updates on how she's doing and what has been going on.  More stuff will be posted at time permits...   read more...
Greg & Bruce - Sunday, March 12, 2006
This has been on the site for a while, but since people are coming now to see pics of Caroline, I just thought I'd take 5 seconds to remind everyone that there's a really cool pic of Greg & Bruce Weber in the Fighting Illini photo gallery.   read more...
Caroline's Blog - Sunday, March 12, 2006
So, I'm going to *attempt* to keep an fairly up-to-date Blog on Caroline's life.  If I'm successful at doing this, you'll see posts in her blog.   read more...

Caroline pictures! - Saturday, March 11, 2006

Pictures of Caroline Grace are now posted on her section of the website.  Incessant demands (laugh) from family & friends forced a very tired Daddy to get these up ASAP.

Mission accomplished, and now Daddy can get cleaned up, eat, and take a nap.

Due date comes...and goes... - Wednesday, March 08, 2006
Today (3/8) was Krista's due date, and it came and went without the arrival of baby.  Fret not though, for she will arrive very shortly.  
Not yet... - Sunday, March 05, 2006
Not quite yet, we're still waiting for our little angel to arrive.  Any day now though, so keep your eyes peeled to the home page for an announcement.

Photo re-org completed - Sunday, October 09, 2005
The re-organization of the photos section is complete.  The photos are now organized into categories.  Hover over the photos menu to see the different categories and click on the category name to see the photos in that grouping.  
Photo re-org - Tuesday, October 04, 2005
Over the next few weeks, I'll be doing a re-organization of the Photos section.  There will be submenu items from the main Photos menu for each grouping of photos.  This should make browsing through the photos easier.  Until the photos are migrated to the submenu groupings, you can still access all of them by clicking on the Photos link itself.  
Coming Soon, Baby Blaum - Saturday, October 01, 2005
Yes, that's right!  Krista and I are expecting a baby.  Krista's due date is early March 2006.  As of this point, we don't yet know what it will be, but we don't care if it is a boy or girl.  Expect updates on the site periodically.  
Site updates - Sunday, August 14, 2005
I've updated the look and feel of the Weather module on the home page and uploaded the new version of the photo gallery module (SimpleGallery).  In addition, I made several minor tweaks throughout the site.  
Pictures galore! - Friday, August 05, 2005
There are now over 350 pictures on the website and they can all be seen in the Photos section.  I'll be adding more and possibly re-categorizing some of them in the near future.  
Photos are up! - Sunday, July 31, 2005
I've copied a large amount of photos up to the site over the past week or so.  I've still got quite a few more to go, so they'll trickle in over the next few weeks when I get time.  
Photos coming soon - Friday, July 22, 2005
Over the next week or so, I'll be adding lots of photos to the site.  Make sure you check the Photos page regularly.  
New site up and running - Wednesday, July 20, 2005
The new site design is up and running.  I spent a lot of time looking at various toolsets and skins and I finally settled on this one.  Pretty cool if you ask me, and it is ORANGE!
