Halloween came early in Waco this year.

These days, between surprising his family with a special vacation to New Mexico for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and caring for baby Crew, Chip Gaines still finds time to stay tapped in with his construction roots.  

Earlier this week, the papa-to-five even posed for a photo opp with a Chip-in-training. "You can always tell a hard worker by their boots and by the look of this kid’s, I certainly would not bet against him," he captioned the adorable snapshot of himself posing next to his aspiring construction companion, along with the hashtag "#FutureContractor." The duo stand beside a sign touting Chip and Jo's Magnolia empire — interested customers can contact homedesign@magnolia.com, though no promises they'll be greeted with such a cute youngster as their contractor.

Fans eagerly chimed in with comments ranging from "Where did he get that tool belt?! My son wants one so bad but not a 'toy belt' it has to be legit!" to "He’s ready for Demo Day, Chip."

So now that you got our wheels turning, Chip Gaines, we have but one question to ask thee: Can Magnolia Market  start selling matching Chip-n-Jo Halloween costumes, please?
