What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday, y'all! GOSH, where is the time going?!? I still have to upload TONS of pics and do lots of updates from the last week or week and a half or so.  Whew - will get to it hopefully tomorrow!  Anyways, glad I jumped on here in time to do a WILW post!  Wanna do one too? Link up HeRe!!

I'm LOVING the Chess Squares I took for dessert at Thanksgiving - super easy and they were definitely a hit!  All you do is mix a 4 oz. stick of butter, 1 beaten egg, and a package of butter cake mix and pat that down in the bottom of a 9x12 dish.  Then mix a pound of confectioner's sugar (reminder....I didn't say it was healthy), 4 eggs beaten, and 8 oz of softened cream cheese.  Once that is mixed, pour onto the crust in the dish and then bake at 350 for 30-40 mins or until brown.  YUM!!

I'm LOVING Christmas music!  I love The Carpenters this time of year....and Josh Groban has a very magical voice, especially with Christmas music!

I'm LOVING this advent idea!  You cut up these activity cards and do one each day until Christmas!  What a great idea!  You can find a printable version of the cards here
I'm LOVING that we are going to do the Elf on the Shelf this year!  I think we may get it out tonight and read the book and name it and all of that fun stuff!  I am wondering if Katie will get it - I guess we will see!

I'm LOVING that I am taking Katie to see Santa this afternoon.  We have been talking about it for about a week or so to prepare her.  I'm hoping to have a good picture rather than a screaming crying picture like last year.  She even has a list of things she plans to ask him for!  We've talked about the fact that she will tell Santa she would like a purse and a camera and then smile for a picture and give him a hug and be all done.  We shall see how it goes!

I'm LOVING that we are all but done with our Christmas shopping! I think I still lack a few giftcards, but other than that, we are set!  Bring on the wrapping!  I can't wait to get some gifts under our tree!
