Thankful for these memories...

Over Thanksgiving break, I was able to hang out with some friends that I've known since my childhood.  The weekend before Thanksgiving, I got coffee with Emily, Ciani, and Cara, my 3 closest friends from middle school.  Because we were in a special program at school, a group of about 20 of us literally had all our core classes together all 3 years of middle school... so we knew each other pretty well.  :)  I still keep up with Cara, Emily, and Ciani and we try to get together when we're all in Greensboro over holidays.  Our coffee dates usually end up being 5 hour dates that end when the coffee shop closes.  I always love getting to catch up with these wonderful ladies!!  They all have such exciting lives, traveling all over the world... but I'm thankful they'll make the trek back to Greensboro so I can see them, too.  :)
Cara, me, Emily, & Ciani
Aaron & I also got to hang out with Emily, Michael, Micah, and Turner over the break & it was so great to see them again!!  
Friends from Westover!
Beahm, Emily, & Micah
My little bro  :)
The guys (after Aaron left)
One of my favorite people ever!
Seeing friends from my childhood always makes me so happy.  It's one of the perks of living in Greensboro... I usually get to see them when they come back to visit their families.  :)

High Point Half Marathon

A few years ago, if I had told my dad that he'd be running a half marathon, he would have laughed at me.  Eliza too.  But after a few months of diligent training, they just finished their first half marathon in High Point a week ago!!  They ran the whole way & did it in a faster time than their goal time.  I'm so proud of them!  :)  
Dad & Lib with their fan club.
Except mom, who took the picture.
Go team O'Hare!
Ready or not... here they come.
Eliza tried to hide from all my pictures.  Lame.
At mile 5. 
At mile 10.
Thumbs up from Eliza... good sign.
At mile 13....  .1 to go!
Gold metals at the finish line...  ;)
Next year, maybe I'll run it with y'all.  Maybe.  :)

Turner & Agustina's Reception!

Last weekend, Aaron & I got to go to Turner & Agustina's wedding reception and it was so beautiful!  Turner & Agustina actually got married a few weeks ago in Argentina (where Agustina is from), but they also wanted to have a celebration in Greensboro for friends of the Krebs family.  Here are a few pictures from the reception.  :)
The beautiful bride & the groom!

Aunt Lori came to visit!!

My sweet cousins and crazy aunt & uncle are missionaries in Germany so we don't get to see them very often.  We miss the Duhans like crazy.  And we miss all the other cousins who are off at college or living in another state or country.
A few weeks ago we got together at Lynne's house
and took a cousin picture... we held up pictures
of all the missing cousins, since we missed you guys! 
Only 4 of the girl cousins were there.
But Aunt Lori came back to Greensboro to visit last week!  And since Morgan's in school at Appalachian, she came home too so we got to see 2 out of 5 of the Duhan clan!  It was so good to see them & hang out with the family.  :)  But we missed you Nate, Maddie, & Brenton... and Aaron & Stacy!
 We started the day off with a little Just Dance action!
Congregated around Trent's chips & dip... typical.
Eliza & Trent
Hey cuties!

Mom & I matched  :)

And Stacy, we missed you.  But you're in  a background picture!

Maddie, we all missed you!!
Did you really think I wouldn't post this Eliza??
Love & miss you guys!  See you next summer?!?!  ;)
