As, I have posted before, our son Chance is currently serving in Afghanistan. One night on Facebook, he commented that it was really chilly and he could use a blanket and hot chocolate. I sent a message asking if the Army didn't provide blankets. LOL! He responded that they did, but he was still cold, so I offered to make him a blanket. I had told him that I would for Christmas, but decided I would do it early. He thought that was a wonderful idea.
