If you know me, you know that I try to get as much done by December 1st as I can, so I can immerse myself in the season and do all the festive things. I created this title before I knew this first part of December would be squashed by sickness this week for myself and Mr. Nine. Not only have we been down for the count, but we did not get to celebrate our oldest's birthday with him due to not wanting to expose him, Lo, or the twins to any sickness. I think that’s been the hardest part of it all besides being miserable. Mom brought us chicken soup and we’ve been hunkered down watching house renovation shows and Christmas movies so I guess it could be worse, lol. Unfortunately, we probably won’t get to attend a party tomorrow night that I’ve been looking forward to for months. Got to get better and pack in the festiveness. Dang it all!

1. The Twins
But I’ve got some pictures to share! These girls are doing great! I can’t wait to snuggle them after we’re better!
Peeking out of their car cute!

2. Mr. Christmas Winner

I couldn’t believe it, but I won a contest on Instagram with my friend who runs the Instagram Walmart Favs, and with the original Mr. Christmas! Aren’t these items just beautiful! They’re going to fit in perfect with my candy Christmas corner in he Kitchen. Mr. Christmas does it right, vintage cuteness at its best and many items are available at Walmart!!

They've been in business 90 years!!

My plan was to have at least one or two lunches a week with friends, so I was at least happy to get one in last week with a dear, old friend of mine! Now to get better! Some of these lunches might have to wait till January!

Isn’t this charcuterie Christmas wreath so pretty! I made this for my family Christmas day last year and I will be making it again. It was a huge hit and just different from your regular charcuterie boards. I love how creative people get with their meat and cheese boards, lol!

The giant round board I got from Target spins around (Lazy Susan) which makes it extra fun. It was funny, last year, I had a hard time finding the Christmas shapes Walker shortbreads, but this year they are all over the place. Oh I found the board HERE and HERE (cheaper than I paid for it).

Get Christmas shaped shortbread cookies HERE. The MINI Trees HERE.

The Little Gingerbread Men HERE.

Here is a YouTube Link how to make the Salami Roses that I used. Next time I would make them a tad smaller.

The greenery around the board I had saved from when I made my topiaries. You could also use rosemary sprigs too, which I use on a lot of my Christmas appetizers. Instead of a lot of slices with my cheese, it was fun to just do some in chunks. The possibilities are endless. I think I’m going to be making a brunch one this year with croissants, fruit, Spreads, bagels, etc. on it.

Do you make Charcuterie Boards especially during the Holiday season! 

I'll be back with Friday Favorites this week and 

Love ya!
