Quick update: The kids got these in the mail on Saturday, and according to their mom, they were thrilled. Ingrid didn't want to take her hat off, and her mom said the blue really brought out the color of her eyes. Benjamin loves his monster hat, and both were trying to steal an ear warmer (not pictured) that I sent to their mom!
THAT certainly made all the headaches of making these worthwhile!!
I'm not sure yet if the shirt fits, but I hope to get pictures of them soon!
Thanks for all your kind comments.
