Bob the Builder

* * * * * * * * *

Aaron Jr and Leslie at the Harkness Halloween Party.
Aaron was Bob the Builder this year. A character on a show on PBS. He has been really into using tools and 'building' things lately. My niece, Anna, suggested he be a builder and it worked out nicely. We didn't have to spend any money... we already had all the stuff. Thanks Anna! :)
I don't know what I am. I guess someone from the 60's? I bought that dress when I was a senior in high school at a thrift store for $4.00. It was for a dance at school with the theme of Wood Stock. It was great. It was one of the best purchases I have ever made. I have used it for many Halloweens.

Here are all of Aaron Jr's cousins on the Harkness side.
Sophia, Lennon, Malia, Pearl, Ava, Grace, Isaac, Aaron Jr, Suzy

This is all of the Harkness family except Steve Sr. who is taking the photo... and, of course, Aaron is missing as well.

ON Halloween, Aaron Jr was taking his role of Bob the Builder. I had to get some tape out to fix something on his hard hat, so once I FIXED his hat, he took the tape and started 'FIXING' things all over the house. He started on this door. He would put some tape on it...

...then he would use his hammer to hammer the tape onto the door. It was so funny. He spent quite a while doing this that day.

On the drive over to my sister, Karey's house, Aaron Jr fell asleep in the car with his stuff... he had been working so very hard.

This is Aaron Jr. When we got there, he tried on Joe's costume. He was having a blast running around in this costume scaring people.

Aaron Jr and Savannah. She was so kind to take Aaron with her and her friends to go trick or treating around their neighborhood. He had so much fun. Thank you Savannah!

When we got home that night, Aaron Jr started in on his 'FIXING' things again and here is the project he worked on that night. He was so proud.

Halloween isn't my favorite holiday, but we had fun anyway. Aaron Jr was the cutest little Bob the Builder he could be. Like father, like son. We sure miss you Daddy / Aaron...

HOW cute! He IS the cutest Bob the Builder I have ever seen! The tape cracks me up! You're probably gonna be peeling it off for days! LOL

Glad he had a good time. :)

Love the costumes! The best ones are the ones you can put together from stuff at home!

That last photo of Aaron Jr. in his PJ's is so adorable! He looks very grown up and is amazingly handsome. Each stage of growing up is so magical!

Aaron IS Bob the Builder. He looked so adorable in his costume. I think it is so fun that Sue and Steve host that Halloween party every year. I bet the kids love it and look forward to it.
That dress is so vibrant, a good one to keep around. I dare you to wear it to church on Sunday.
