A Phineas and Ferb Halloween: Ferb

Took a break from our Phineas and Ferb Halloween yesterday to talk about Sharing the Thanks and Not the Germs.

Today I am back, and I am bringing you the silent and equally brilliant other half to Phineas.

Ferb Fletcher.

Ferb is Phineas's British, mostly silent step brother. He is pretty much the best. He is always available to put into plan Phineas's schemes. He is pretty much the handy man.

He hardly smiles. He is oh-so-serious.

He is purple pants wearing and square headed.

Just like the Phineas costume, we had to make this Summer outfit warmer for the really chilly weather we are expected to have for Halloween. So I added sleeve and leg inserts to make the costume warmer. Everything is made from flannel or fleece, again for the warmth factor.

Moment of truth: this costume about did me in. Not so much in sewing, but in conception to actual costume. I didn't realize how quirky Ferb really looked. I made A LOT (seriously a lot) of adjustments. Another moment of truth (this one harder to share) my sweet Middle has really struggled with having to wear this costume.

When I first presented the ideas, he was pretty excited. However, as time came closer and closer and the costume was already pretty much done, with the exceptions of said adjustments, all he really wanted to be was the Green Ninjago.

Alas, it was too late.

He has been a good sport and worn it anyway (with only minor pep talks). I don't feel he is being ungrateful, because our Phineas and Ferb Halloween was this Momma's idea. I pretty much coerced the oldest two into joining along.

I do feel pretty bad. I have let them know that next year there doesn't have to be a theme. They can pick their costumes. I knew I was cutting it close with picking for them this year. Oldest is 9 and Middle is 7. They should get to go against the theme. Halloween is for them after all.

Thanks for letting me keep it real for a moment. I just felt I should share that not everything I do is rainbows and ponies and smiles and giggles. Life is real.

Okay, back to Ferb.

Even though he is unsure of this costume, Middle rocks Ferb.

He is the perfect companion to Phineas. They are ready to get down to business and build a rollar coaster, or a beach, or a giant paper airplane.

Tomorrow I am going to share Dr. Doofensmirtz and Perry the Platypus.
You won't want to miss it!

You are such a great Momma! I appreciate your keeping it real moments sooo much! Being a Mom is such hard work. I am sure that there will be lots of smiles and giggles about the "Phineas Halloween" in the future :) I know how much work you had to have put into making that costume just right and how hard it must have been to see Middle struggle to wear it. It is so endearing to know that other Momma's (especially adorable, homemaking, blogging, crafty Momma's) struggle sometimes too!
