...is not so much:
*dinner ready when they arrive, or eating out at Chinese buffet (what's Chinese about it I've yet to discover)
*baby chicks that they can play with and name
*a trip to Wal-Mart for groceries (go figure)
*singing ballads in the car (and John Denver's "Grandma's Feather Bed")
*sitting around the fireplace, just talking
*a CD player (it was in the cupboard in a box, and I hadn't used it in 4 years. One of those personal ones, just what Hannah (aka Shopper Girl) wanted. We found batteries, the DC adapter, headphones and she was in heaven).
*MySpace time on the computer (this would be Haley) and a chance to email their Dad in Iraq)
If you haven't guessed, Hannah and Haley are back for a weekend with Granny!
