A Little Home in the Bluegrass – Our first Thanksgiving in Lexington

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!

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
