Our first Thanksgiving in Lexington was so cold and snowy that it felt like Christmas. For our Thanksgiving meal with Grammie and Leon, David roasted a turkey, cooked a delectable sweet potato casserole and prepared some canned green beans. Jacob had stayed at Grammie’s house the night before and watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning before Mom, Dad and James came.
We enjoyed our meal and the adults ate until we could not eat anymore. The following night Dad, Mom, Jacob and James went downtown for the Christmas tree lighting event. David and Lam enjoyed walking around downtown to explore the different restaurants and bars and the Lexington Center, a classy indoor mall. The Lexington Center reminded us of the malls we enjoyed so much in Singapore.
We thought the event was nicely put together. We enjoyed fresh kettle corn, seeing people ice-skating and the live music both indoors and outdoors. However, the temperature dropped quite low and we ended up leaving right before Santa lit up the tree. Even though we were a little disappointed about leaving early, we were glad to be back in our warm cozy little home!
