Boxed Social...


Tonight the amazing youth of our ward at church had a Boxed social. Hosted by the 12 and 13 year girls in which I am in charge of. I was very impressed with how well they planed the event. Needless to say it was a huge success. For those of you who may not know what a boxed Social is I will quickly explain. he girls make a dinner for two put it in a decorated box and the boys have to bid on the boxes. We had the young men earn the money by reciting scriptures dressing properly being on time ETC. The fun part was the boys had know clue who the boxes belonged too. All they new was that there was food inside. After the all the boys wee done bidding on the boxes we had the girls go join the boy that brought the box.. It was so fun to see there expressions when they found out who the were paired with.
The boxes The girls made so pretty and fun!!! I think they were very clever in the way they decorated.

The girls eagerly waiting to see who was going to bid on there box.. Look at there eager faces

The boy willing and ready to bid.. Don't they look existed!!!


The Boy and the girl socializing and eating there yummy meal together!!! Aren't they cute....
The boys and girls playing a game so nicely together.. As one adult leader pointed out it looked like they were getting ready to sing I want give the world a Coke.. (Remember that commercial.)
