The other day Anya was requesting that we have a traditional Christmas at home. She continued by explaining she wanted it to be cold, with snow, a big decorated Christmas tree, and loads of our family. While I know I’ve had plenty of Christmas experiences with all of that, I realized she hadn’t. We have experienced Christmas vacations “away” from our home for most of her life and only a couple of times with snow.
The unexpected gift which turned into a magical treasure for Anya. Two years ago, on Anya’s 9th birthday, we were invited over to our neighbors for a special homemade dessert to celebrate her birthday. These are friends we’ve made since living in Spain and we have just connected with them on so many levels. They are a young couple and had a newborn baby, but we all just connected.

Alan and I have been married for nearly 17 years and we love to one up each other on creative ways to give a gift. These ideas are perfect for the “little to no footprint gifts“. We know it may seem a bit boring to just hand someone an envelope with a gift card or money inside. That’s not quite an elaborate presentation to build up excitement. Not to worry, we have some creative ways to give money as a gift or any gift for that matter.
As we are a traveling family living in Spain, space is of great importance to us. We try very hard not to collect too many material “things” as we want to keep our belongings to a minimum. We have decided to share a Unique Gift Guide. These are great gift ideas for the person who has everything and we even provide you fun and creative ways to give a gift!
Happy Birthday Lars!
Now the entire Wagoner Family has celebrated a “Happy Birthday” while living in Spain. Now that he is 11, he isn’t a little kid. It was a school day for Lars, so we celebrated after school was out at 2pm. He requested Teriyaki Steak for Lunch along with a American Cake. Luckily we have some cake mix and frosting from the U.S., so he was a happy camper. The pièce de résistance was his gift. Alan is taking him with VIP passes to a professional Fútbol Game this weekend! Continue reading
