My Hero And The Elf On The Shelf

Now, I know that some of you
have husbands that take naps.
I have one that seems to 
take a
especially when there is
lots of stuff on the

unbeknownst to MyHero, 
there is a little
friend joining him.
Look how cute!
The BOTH have 
sleep masks.
He moves around  a bit
to get more comfortable.
However, our little elf 
is not much of a napper.
As you can see he has
pushed HIS mask up
so he can see what is 
going on.
Hey- Buddy- time to 
Whaddaya doing under there?
Sigh...Looks like MyHero
is still sleeping soundly.
Thank you, Little Elf!
You have done your job
for the day.
You have helped me with
too many naps!
Revenge is 

Pssstttt... tomorrow is 
Christmas Eve!
You better be good now
that you are awake!


  1. yep, you're gonna get it!! You are so bad!!!!!Have a wonderful day!

  2. Donna, You remind me of my daughters...if they thought their father was sleeping in on Sundays, they would open his eyelids.:):)You only have two more days to be nice.LOL Merry Christmas. xo,Susie

  3. Ha HA! There's napping, and then there is FOOTBALL! We need a stair rail put up before tomorrow...Send that elf to Tacoma please!

  4. Buddy is such a hoot! I bet at one time HE was on the naughty list until he repented!

  5. Love this post, Diana! You are always too funny. Enjoy your last minute preparations for the big day. xo

  6. Too funny, Diana! Your hubby is a great sport. xo

  7. How cute...BOTH of them! I have some little elves playing at my house on my post this morning. They make everything FUN!

  8. Haha! He's gonna get you for this, Diana! : ) My hubby usually naps while watching television. One time we put my granddaughter's teddy bear under his arm while he was sleeping {and she added a baby doll on his lap}. Gotta love a grandchild who, at 2 1/2, already has a sense of humor alongside mine!

  9. YIKES!!!!! You are gonna get it from your elf sweet lady, and I don't mean the little guy!!!... you are a naughty girl!!!... Jack would have woken up by then... either your guy is a sound sleeper or really does not want anything on the "to~do" list given to him... I hope I see you back here tomorrow!... xoxo Julie Marie

  10. LOL- that's funny! I can't wait until he sees that. He will start locking the bedroom door! Good thing about being shiny on top, no bed hair! LOL

  11. Oh Diana, you are being naughty!! Trying to wake Santa, is taking a chance. LOL LOL!! You are so creative my friend. Love this post.

    Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and many blessings in the new year. So wonderful to get to know you the last several months. Sending Christmas hugs,

  12. mine just snoozes and snores on the sofa while we're watching tv or i'm blogging! i love how your little elf is keeping an eye on your man!

    merry merry christmas sweet friend!

  13. I cannot believe he slept through that. I have to do that elf on a shelf thing with my littlest next year. It is so funny. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

  14. Oh all of you girls and your elves crack me up! You are a little devil, Diana. When my husband napped and began snoring loudly, my son and I recorded those awful noises and then let him hear it. He kept telling us it was NOT him. We begged to differ, what with our proof. LOL
    Enjoy your Christmas holiday, my friend. hugs, Sue

  15. LOL!! I love those pictures. Your elf is an ornery little guy. I hope your hero is awake now.

  16. bahaha...You're gonna get in trouble...but it was all for the Grandkids and the magic of Christmas right? ;)

    Just wanted to wish you and your beautiful family a very beautiful Christmas, one filled with love,joy and hope. Thank you for your uplifting comments day after brighten up not only my day but the days of many and you are so loved ! Thank you you...xoxo

  17. Only a man could nap at this critical phase of the preparations! Good thing you have elf help in the house.

  18. Diana
    I'm thinking you have just put yourself in the 'naughty' category!
    It may be a lump of black coal for you, dear lady.
    Your hubby, on the other hand, may not want to be your helper but the mans sure a good sport. For that I think he should go in the 'nice' category!!
    Have a Super Christmas!

  19. Ha!! Love this post Diana!! That little elf is making her way around our house too!
    Merry Christmas my sweet friend!

  20. Hi Diana,
    I really love this post and your sense of humor! LOL

    Shhhh ... between you and me, I have one of those husbands. ;)

    Have a Jolly day!

  21. ha ha! That is hysterical! I've been scouting resale shops for these little elves. : -) Just wanted to pop by and wish you and yours a Merry Merry Christmas! Thank you so much for your friendship, support and encouragement this year. xo

  22. Yep...that is what he gets for sleeping all the time with a wife who has such clever ideas!!

    Looks like the Elf on the Shelf let out some gas right then!! lol

    Have a wonderful Christmas!!!

  23. Diana - That is hilarous!! You better watch out - you might get coal in your stocking!!

    Merry Christmas!


  24. How funny. Loved it. If you go back to my November post with the video, you can see me in a sleep mask. Check it out when you have time.

  25. This is HYSTERICAL!!! I hope his sense of humor matches yours; I'm sure it does!
    Merry Christmas!

  26. Lol!! I have a napper in my house too :) You are a braver woman than I!

  27. What a good sport. My man takes nap on the sofa and he also says . I am not sleeping. Right.

    Last night I was bad. My man was snoring in bed. I told him like that comercial. Your on the sofa guy. He went. In morning he said I slept good. I said I finally did also. He said. Of course you did Carol Ann. In five minutes after I left room you snored like old Saint Nick before he goes on his Christmas rounds. I said then I must be Mrs Saint Nick getting my beauty sleep with you get back with huge supper.

    Your hubby is a real good sport Nan he needs to be on the good list.

  28. OMG that is HYSTERICAL!
    Has he seen the pics yet?
    I would not be able to keep a straight face around him-LOL

  29. :) Oh yes what sweet revenge! although I do have to say I love a good nap - I don't get very many of them though!

  30. Same at my house, Diana. Sigh. We all have a bug, but there must still be cookies and dinner and presents wrapped. Does your elf have an uncle or someone down south? I need assistance and I'm on my own here!
    Bruce is even in the bed! Just me and Sophie in the kitchen. More cookies for us. :)
    Happy Christmas, Diana!
    xxx, Tina

  31. are so funny and full of life. I love that.:)
    Merry Christmas, crazy lady....:)

  32. Too funny, Diana! Wishing a wonderful Christmas to you and your family!...hugs...Debbie

  33. Oh, my! Blame it on the elf, Diana!:-) xo Nellie

  34. Oh My are so funny. He's going to put coal in your stocking. Merry Christmas.

  35. My sweet and funny friend!
    Oh...don't you love it? Looks like you have a sleepyheaded Santa at your house. Funny...I have one at my house, too!
    I'm wishing you a blessed Christmas!
    Big hugs,
    Carolynn xxx

  36. Oh my gosh, I am dying laughing! You had better run and hide. lol! Can't believe hubby slept through it all. My hubby doesn't take naps, but lately he's been waking up at 5:30 and can't go back to sleep. He will doze off on the couch if we are watching t.v. We are both kindof early risers and then get a 2nd wind at night. Party animals you might say, lol! If you call staying up late a party.

  37. When I see these naughty elves, it makes me wish I'd pulled my little vintage elf out to play too! I've been watching friends doing things they wouldn't normally do, but that little elf seems to bring out such a playful naughty side...However Diana, I think your little elf has always been your little sidekick...I have a feeling your Hero has quite a sense of humor too! Have a Blessed Holiday, Big hugs, Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  38. ROFL! Too funny! Jim fell hard asleep one time when my kids were still in high school. He was sitting on the couch holding a cup in his hand. We took the cup away and replaced it with a stuffed animal. Then we wait for him to wake up and when he did, he lifted the "cup" up to his mouth and realized it wasn't what he thought it was LOL!

  39. LOL! To cute!!!!! Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas! xoxoxox

  40. Oh that is so terribly FUNNY!!!! I love it. :) Thank you so much for all your Fun and Sweet visits.. Wishing you and your family a Beautiful and Very Blessed Christmas!!

  41. You and that elf are in trouble lady! I bet you got some coal in your stocking! HeeHee!

  42. What a hoot. Boy did I get a laugh out of this one! I miss you two something fierce!
