Santa's Helper: As Told by Athena

Hi Guys!  Athena here.  Can you believe that it's already Christmas Eve?!  It seems like just yesterday that I was writing about all of my pre-Christmas cheer and my special letter to Santa.

This weekend was very special because my mom, dad, and grandma did some last minute gift wrapping and I was invited to their wrapping party!  They have been impressed with how I don't bother with any of the wrapped presents under the Christmas tree (wellll....unless a present has a shiny bow on it), so I got to be around while they wrapped some more presents.

I'm a very good girl and don't eat any ribbons or wrapping paper

My favorite part about wrapping presents is when the wrapping paper runs out because then I get to have the JUMBO toilet paper roll!  You might not know this about me, but I LOVE chewing up toilet paper and paper towel rolls (mom lets me have them because I usually don't eat any and she says that they are free toys for me to destroy).  Well, yesterday I got to chew up THREE jumbo toilet paper rolls during the present wrapping.  It was pretty much the best day ever.

Jumbo toilet paper roll #3!

How come I didn't notice that bow on my bum?!  I would have tried to eat it if I would have known!

Chompin' on my jumbo toilet paper roll!

Something very silly about my family is that they said they celebrate Christmas Eve AND Christmas day.  So, tonight I get to open lots of my presents even though it's not really Christmas yet!  I guess Santa comes early to their house or something.

Merry Christmas to all of my bloggy friends!

Even though I'm super excited about getting lots of presents tonight, I'm mostly feeling very lucky that I have my new family to spend Christmas with.  I hope everyone out there who celebrates Christmas has a very happy holiday.  My mom and I will be back to blogging after all of the festivities!


  1. I'm glad you have a family for Christmas too. It's my Christmas wish that every pup has a special someone to spend their Christmas with.

    And, you did such a good job helping with the wrapping, those giant rolls need someone to put them in their place!

    Happy Christmas!

  2. Merry Christmas Athena! It will be an awesome first time experience for you! And your mom isn't as mean to you as Pallo's mom is to him- he didn't just get to help wrapping presents, he got wrapped up as a present!

  3. You have a very positive blog. It is evident that Athena is imbued with the spirit of Christmas and is ready to help you pack a gift. These photos are beautiful, they perfectly convey the atmosphere.
