Just what the Doctor ordered!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!! I must say I am so grateful for my mom! She has taught me by the way she lives her life where true happiness comes from! And that by prayer, faith, and trust everything always works out! I am also so grateful to have an amazing mother in law(that sounds weird I just call her mom too)! She has inspired us to strive to live better and to trust Heavenly Father! We love them both more than words can say! Happy Mother's Day moms!
This year we knew Sunday would be extra busy so we celebrated Mother's Day on Saturday at our house!
This is what I woke up to-

I didn't know doctors still made house calls. As they were waking me up I heard Dave say "Yup she doesn't look so good. I think she's sick." Each of the doctors proceeded to check me out and unanimously agreed that I was not doing well and that they were giving orders to stay in bed and rest all day. It was as Kaili described it "Happy Sick Day!" Dave took my canning lids and poked a hole, stuck a brad through them and attached them to ribbon-very official doctor looking stuff. They each had and instrument to check the patient with-Kawika had a stethoscope, Kalani had a breathing thingamajigger(very technical name I know), Kaili had a thermometer, and Kalei had pills(yummy whopper candy) for me to take.
Here is Kaili checking my temperature!

Kawika was very concerned because he couldn't find my heartbeat!

Here are all of the doctors!(Kalei's light even came on-haha)

What a fun bunch of kids and a great husband!! I had a great day! They cleaned the house while I was on bed rest-they even bought me a craft magazine to read so I wouldn't get bored!


Dave said the idea came after our whole family was sick at Easter. After taking care of so many sick people for so long I had a pity party and told Dave that I just wanted to be sick for one day and have someone take care of me! They surely did and it was wonderful! The best part was I didn't even have to deal with any of the sick stuff-I just got to relax and play!
