O'HANA (family of) SISTERS







O'hana (family of) Sisters! That was the theme of our Enrichment Night Luau. I'm the Enrichment leader (not my favorite calling) and I worried about this event all summer long. I don't know why I worried so much. I have a great committee and with every ones help everything turned out so nice. We had a yummy chicken pasta salad with pineapple and grapes, Hawaiian sweet rolls and melon flowers for garnish, floats with Hawaiians Own juice, 7up and coconut pineapple ice cream, and macadamia nut white chocolate cookies. Our friend Matt Hutcheson went to Hawaii a couple of weeks before the event and brought home boxes of chocolate macadamia nuts that we were able to break down into favors that the sisters took home and also used them as part of our centerpieces. We also had a fun program.

I must admit, I'm glad it's over with! You would think I wouldn't have to worry about anything for awhile but NO, I'm already worried about the next thing coming up in November. Arrggg! I just can't turn it off!

It looks so cute! the drink looks REALLY good and i agree with adrienne about the fruit. If our RS was small like yours i could've done good drinks...

Looks so cute! I LOVE that pasta salad, I made it for our baby blessing and everyone wanted the recipe - including your daughter, I told her I originally got it from you I think?!? The drink sounds sooo good! You'd think that 4 enrichments a year would be easier than every month but I think it just makes the planning and anticipatioon worse, good luck in November!

Your Ohana night looks awesome!!

Guess who else is now the Enrichment Leader? I am actually really excited! I am over the 4 quarterly activities, someone else will be over "midweeks." I am planning a fall harvest HFPE in lieu of a Christmas event. The presidency could not get a date that worked well for Christmas so they went with November instead. I have some great ideas so far!
