Farewell, Our Magical Monte.

Monte became a part of our family on December 3rd of this year and now it's time for him to go back to live with Santa to help him get ready for next year. Is it weird that I'm the one that's sad and maybe even a little teary eyed about him leaving us? Yes, okay I realize that it is.

Monte was a really good guest. We loved waking up every morning to see where he would be for the day.

Every time after Oliver would find him, he would say "Silly Monte!"

I loved that.



 On the last day, Oliver found him with a little surprise.

A note.

And Oliver was so excited about it...as you can see.

 We opened up the letter to find that this was Montes last day with us until the next holiday season and he was saying goodbye.


And he wanted to leave a small gift for his favorite little boy.
 When Oliver saw that is was a superhero blanket, he was beyond excited. We opened it up and he flew down the hallway hollering that this was his new superhero cape.


Thank you Monte.
 We will miss you too and we already can't wait to have you stay with us again.

I totally want to do that elf thing next year! I have seen so many people that have done that. It looks like it is totally worth the cost..haha

My mom used to do something like that. It was a santa, and who ever found it in their belongings got the treat that came with it. then that person had to get a treat and hide it for someone else. We did this one when we were older. But the Elf is way cute for the younger kids. I can't wait to be able to do something like that wit my baby.
