When 5-year-old Ainsley Giorgio left her Elmo doll at a hotel while on vacation, she thought she had lost her best friend for good. But little did she know Elmo was having the time of his life, and he came back with pictures to prove it.

In this week's contender for the most heartwarming story ever, a team of hotel employees made Ainsley the happiest girl in the world when they returned to her the lost Elmo doll along with a book of pictures detailing his adventures.

Ainsley and her family finished their stay at the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida, and were on their way home when the girl realized she didn't have her beloved Elmo with her.

Then, just a few days later, the little red cuddle-monster showed up in a package at the Giorgio home with a picture book and the following note:

"Hi Ainsley, just want to let you know that we found this little guy by the pool and thought you might recognize him. He decided he was going to stay at the hotel for a few days and have some more fun."

The glossy book featured the doll hanging out at the hotel, playing video games, working out at the gym and lounging at the pool.

Turns out the book was put together by a Ritz employee named Nelson. Needless to say, Ainsley's mother was effusive in her praise for him.

"Nobody goes above and beyond anymore in this high-tech world," she said. "Nobody goes above and beyond to do the extra special thing. But this guy Nelson at the Ritz not only returned Elmo to us ... but made a book that Ainsley will have for the rest of her life."
