We intended to get a post done shortly after Ryan's party, but we have had a few things go on that have just sucked up our time.
First the company that hosts our website upgraded the software we use for our journal and guestbook. That inadvertently caused several hours of work to get the past entries back. They have been restored, but I still need to go through the old journal entries and upload all of the pictures again.
On top of that we have been dealing with illness after illness in our house since Ryan's party. We started with colds, but last Saturday Ryan developed a fever, sore throat, cough, etc... Fortunately we no longer have to worry about having Sam and Ryan vaccinated for the H1N1 flu virus because we have been dealing with the real virus all week. Ryan was affected the worst. He seems to be doing better. Sam and Jason have had mild symptoms that have come and gone and come and gone throughout the week. We are keeping a close eye on Sam to make sure he does not develop pneumonia.
Once we are all feeling better and we get the pictures loaded back to the journal we will get some new pictures and updates about Sam and what he has been up to. For now this short update is all we can provide as my nice warm bed is calling me, where I plan to be for at least the next 10 hours.
