A Little Home in the Bluegrass – A Belated Post About Jacob’s Halloween

Jacob’s first Halloween in Lexington was splendid. I can’t believe I forgot to post about this experience of his.

We went to a chili cook-off at the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church with Jacob in his costume and he received praises for his genuinely scary costume – a “messy” skeleton zombie.

Daddy and Jacob carved 2 fine jack-o-lanterns that we enjoyed every night for a whole month. They went trick-or-treating in the Chevy Chase neighborhood near our home and raved about the fun of it to Mommy and James when they got home.

People loved Jacob’s costume and the people themselves got dressed up in scary costumes waiting for kids right in front of their houses.  One young family and their friends even went all out to create a creepy graveyard complete with tombstones and ghosts right in their front yard.  Jacob noticed that graveyard on his way home from school, so Daddy and Jacob decided they must explore it. The ghosts were giant compared to Jacob but he was brave and even said “boo” to one of them.

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.
