Movie Time…

Getting each of the boys their own candy, popcorn, and soda was a big chore.
Seeing how grateful and thankful they were to go to the movie, and Get the treats..... Priceless!!
When the boys returned to Ranch they were given an additional gift of a concert from Ephraim. I didn’t know that Ephraim could sing?
All in All a great break to the

Homeade Christmas

The guys this year were able to participate in a friendly competition where they decorated the dorms with the items they already had or recieved on a daily basis. They LOVED IT! Here is some of their handy work...

 Frosty the Snowman?

Snowflakes can be different colors! 
 Is that Snow??
 These guys were just planning ahead for new years! 
And to top it off a true Charlie Brown christmas tree!

It was awesome to see the boys get so into this little competition and to realize that the true gifts are not things like electronics and cars and money, but rather they are each other, service, family, and giving not just recieving.....
Santa made a specialtrip to the DRA Cabin early, and I mean early, Sunday morning. Where he gave out stocking to all the students.
The boys had a great time. It was nice to see how appreciative the boys were for the gifts they received.
Lava Falls had a dorm decorating contest, and man did they do a great job. Kyle and Ike did an amazing job.

They had a great time making the dorms look speical for the day.  The day was overall AMAZING!!
Have a wonderful holiday season. The boys did great.
