1. Athena got dressed up for the occasion
Being her first Christmas, I wanted to make sure that Athena was in full holiday spirit and dressed for the occasion. On Christmas Eve I attempted to sew my first ever flower to attach to Athena's collar. The flower turned out well for being my first attempt, so Athena wore it on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. She also sported a very festive red tutu and a pair of reindeer ears that complete her holiday outfit.

2. Athena visited with lots of family and met some new people (including her first toddler)
We went to different family members' houses on Christmas Eve and Christmas day which meant that Athena got to visit with lots of people. She did great reuniting with much of our family that she has already met, and she was fairly calm when meeting new people (she is sometimes fearful of strangers). Athena even met her first toddler and was totally in love with him. She was his shadow for all of Christmas day and was extremely gentle with him even when he bonked her a few times and screamed really loud (this reaffirms our belief that Athena lived with children in her past).

3. Athena was spoiled
Of course you knew that this would happen, but Athena was totally and completely spoiled for Christmas. She got so much stuff I'm embarrassed to even post a picture of everything. A few items that I'm most excited about are a 5 day pass to her doggy daycare, a Buster Food Cube, and Musher's Secret Paw Wax, along with a slew of other fabulous gifts.
