When the kids woke up on the 24th they found Kaley in Ryan's room with a note to them. She explained that she would be leaving to go back to the North Pole and wouldn't be back until next year. Ryan was really sad about it and I think Darin and I were a little relieved the time had come. We were getting a little tired of hiding her every night. In the note Kaley said that they were allowed to touch her and give her a hug just this once to say goodbye.
