The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Luau Memories

Kyle is loaded down with 10 orchid leis!

Crystal and Annette working hard in the kitchen! Thank you to all of you who so graciously gave of your time in the kitchen....Melanie, Sherry, Cindy, Crystal, Troi, Lee, Beverly, Mitch, Sacred Heart Women's Guild, DKG, and more!

Tastey haupia was prepared which is a cocunut pudding...

The Big Kahuna!

The guests watch on as our dancers perform.

There were 2 tiki huts set up, and this one was very popular once the party got underway. POG was served at my mom's request, (Passion fruit, Orange, and Guava juice) and it was a big hit. The punch bowl was refilled over 20 times!

The pretty hibiscus cakes in 4 flavors! Thank you Barbara Thomas for baking such delicious cakes!

Shellie poses next to the gorgeous fruit table. My sister in law Cindy came up with the idea to drill holes in pineapples and attach palms on top! Thank you Fred for drilling all the holes which were layered on an upside down table! My sisters in law Shellie, Cindy, Tami, brother in law Mitch, and my mother in law Billie cut fruit for over 200 people until the wee hours on Saturday night!

Two of our lovely Luau Ladies Committee...Annette and Cindy...

Thank you Lani and your lovely hula dancers!
