A one woman USO

Wanna guess what I've done today? I made a big trip to Wal-Mart and bought out the store, then came home and started assembling care packages. I didn't realize how many soldiers I loved until I started sending care packages! I've put together nine today, and have to bake and pack up chocolate chip cookies before the boxes can be sealed. :-)

Truthfully, three of the boxes are for JC... He has stuff the he wants sent back so he'll have it a day or two after he settles back into his FOB. Hopefully it'll make the others smile to get some of the truly RANDOM things I'm sending them! Who knows what was going through my mind (probably lack of thought really...), but they're getting some off the wall stuff - Silly Putty, Febreeze, pens with their names on them, water balloons, magazines, temporary tattoos... the list goes on and on.

I know that some of you are military. What are you sending your guys? I can always use new ideas!!

  1. What a great thing you are doing! For real...all my husband kept asking for was baby wipes and beef jerky. LOL When he was there, that was in every package! When he goes back this year, I am sure history will repeat itself :) I also recorded stories about the kids and let them talk on the mic so he could hear all our voices on tape.


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
