NCCS Prom 2012 -- What a beautiful night! Kirsten was escorted to prom by her longtime friend Alex who came with his family from Ohio for a weekend visit. I LOVE that they went together and made some sweet memories as long time childhood friends. This picture was taken just a few years ago, though they go back much farther than that! One year they even had a combined birthday party when they were four and five years old as they share a birthday one year and one day apart. Alex used to live in our area but moved away about eight years ago, though we still see them often and try to vacation together.
