I should explain the name of the blog “Little Temujin”.
Our little one is not the typical blue eyed and blond Russian kid. Actually, he has big brown eyes, long lashes and brown (seems curly) hair. He is definitely mixed but we are not sure what races. So, in absence of a true family tree, we decided that he is a distant relative to the legendary Genghis Khan whose original name was Temujin.

We had our first Easter with Vanie and it was so much fun. For those of you who don’t know, the Bulgarian Orthodox Easter is usually 2 weeks after the Catholic Easter and we tend to celebrate the Bulgarian holiday. This year, both Easters were on the same Sunday and it worked out perfectly. I have to figure out what we’ll do in the upcoming years but my guess is that we will celebrate both holidays with Vanie ( a lot of Bulgarian families do that for their kids). Our neighbors organized the usual Easter egg hunt for all the local kids and Vanie participated. He didn’t know what to do first but it didn’t take him long to go after all the hidden egg and flying balloons. He loved it and we enjoyed it as well.

We also had Easter lunch with close friends on that Sunday which was great. Vanie met our fiend’s dog, Ben for the 1st time. At first, Vanie was somewhat scared of him but it didn’t take long to become friends with him and “steal” all his toys.

Our little guy always has time to stop and smell the flowers :-) !!!
