How do you get toddlers to keep their blankets on overnight?

We have 18-month old twin girls. They wear PJ's to bed (full-length/footies now that it's getting cooler [we live in CT]) and we cover them with a nice fleecy blanket. Problem is, of course, that they move around at night and manage to kick their blankets off and they're not big enough yet to pull their blankets back on. So my wife and I get up frequently throughout the night to make sure they're covered and warm enough.
Are there any tricks to get them to keep the blankets on? I'd love to hear your experiences with anything that worked. When do they start pulling blankets back on themselves?
(They're too big for the HALO sleepsacks. We also pay attention to their temperatures, and they're not pulling the blankets off because they're too hot.)
