After saying goodnight to Cosette, knowing that the little elf was going to fly off to Santa with a very good report, Cadence was super excited to get up this morning and greet her new little elf friend. Still dressed in her pajamas and sporting some serious bedhead, Cadence hurried downstairs to find Cosette and tell her all about last night’s dreams.
But, when she looked for Cosette on the TV stand where she’d left her, Cosette was nowhere to be found.
“Hey!” said Cadence. “Where is Cosette? Where she go?”
“I don’t know. You better go look.”
Cadence hurried out to the sunporch to make sure Cosette hadn’t gotten lost in one of the toy bins or locked in the toy box over night.
But then, walking back into the living room, Cadence spied something peculiar…
Apparently, after returning from her trip to the North Pole to report to Santa, Cosette had taken a little balloon ride around the house and got hung up in the archway between the living room and dining room. Tricky little elf! She even managed to make herself a secure little harness out of shoelaces! Cadence was beside herself with glee!
Well…right up until the moment she realized that Cosette didn’t leave her a balloon to play with. That little oversight resulted in a few minutes of frustrated hollering, and I’m sure Cosette felt pretty bad about being so forgetful. I don’t think she’ll be making the same mistake twice!
Silly Cosette! I wonder what sort of shenanigans she’ll come up with tomorrow! 🙂
