Doctor Doctor

Ellie loves princesses, real and imaginary animals, and all things Disney. When I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween, though, she surprised us. She said, "a doctor." After Jake called every member of his immediate family to find out who put her up to such a lame Halloween costume, we realized that this was, indeed, Ellie's own idea. I thought she would change her mind, though.
She never did. So, Ellie is a doctor for Halloween. Ellie's Aunt Paden, who is a real life doctor, and her uncle Michael Angelo (that's his real name, I promise) who is almost a doctor doctor (MD, Ph.D.) were in town last week, so we got pics of all the docs together.

Now, I have to interject something here. Technically, Jake, Jake's dad, Jake's aunt Lorraine, and I are doctors, also--doctors of law. But for some reason, lawyers don't get to wear that title. Now why is that? Is there any other kind of doctor that doesn't get to be called Doctor such-and-such? And why does our daughter want to be a doctor-not-a-lawyer for Halloween?

Judd is a turtle.
We weren't just playing in the Halloween costumes. We got the kids all dressed up for our ward's Trunk-or-Treat party. Tons of fun.
