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!

A mouse in the house!


The cat was acting funny this morning and didn't seem to want to leave Kyle's backpack. I had a sinking suspicion that we may have had an unwelcome visitor. Sure enough, I lifted up Kyle's backpack and out ran a little grey field mouse! The cat went berserk, the dogs joined in the mayhem, and here they are hunting for the mouse under the hutch. Tom set a trap, but we can still see the little mouse hiding on the baseboard. As much as we love our 3 acres, one negative is the creatures that come to visit...mice, coyotes, and mosquitoes. We'll let you know when we capture our little visitor...unfortuantely, you know what that means...where there is one...more may come to visit! Screech!

Good luck capturing your new "friend"!

Happy Ground Hog's Day by the way.

Welcome to the country! The photo is priceless! My Mom enjoyed visiting our house because between animals and kids there was rarely a dull moment.
