I keep seeing the @llbean
Christmas commercial where the parents move all the Christmas decor & presents outside into the snow. I love it and think how cool to have parents like that. Then I remember my parents letting us skate in our drained pool, before that was a thing, and the time my Mom grabbed the water hose and came INTO the house spraying us because all us kids were running around having a water fight and she wanted to win!! Yep, I had cool parents like that! #coolparents #crazy8kids #bigitalianfamily #marketingdoneright
As your parents, @py2k7
and I could not be prouder of our baby twins and the bday party you threw for yourselves without any of our help last night, so we made you a photo album to never forget it.
Clean your room.
And a bravo to the talented photographer @lornstar

Every single year I say I am going to be more organised with my Christmas shopping and somehow it always sneaks up on me 🙈 Looks like it’s going to be a crazy week of shopping in the crowds for me 🤪
Happy 62nd Wedding Anniversary to this beautiful couple (aka my/our parents)!!! I’m looking forward to Wedding Anniversary #63
. This photo was taken at Shaw’s Crab House, in Chicago, on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. The custom cake is of the rooming house they met at while my father was stationed at 5th Army Headquarters on Chicago’s south side. #62ndweddinganniversary #coolparents

Happy 6 month birthday to the coolest happiest little dude that is Wesley James Klenke! We kicked it off by puking on the “white couch” followed by beers, nachos, teething toys and ended with some of daddies home made bagels..... #coolparents #homemadebagels #cutebabies
Happy 5th anniversary to my best friend and partner in crime, @katiedid_gram.
I’m not sure where the time went but I’m sure glad we spent it together. Thanks for supporting me and loving me when I tell you I want to put out another solo album... or when I have to build a table in a week... or when I fall asleep halfway through the movie... Let’s just do this whole thing for another 70 years and we’re good. 😘
Our first day at Disneyland was so fun! It was wayyy crowded.. but we didn’t have any negative run-ins and it was actually really manageable! How does Disney do it. Haha.
I was kind of nervous leading up to our trip about ridges height, and him not being able to ride a lot of the rides, wondering if he would even have fun, how Juni would do, etc. basically just questioning the whole operation 😂 BUT! None of my fears even mattered or were realized! Ridge LOVED it!! There was so much to see and do and walk to! We had two days in Disneyland and didn’t even get to all of it! He was a champ and didn’t have any melt-downs. He was the best pal. Juni was her funny, robot-baby self. Seriously, she slept MAYBE an hour TOTAL during the day, both days we were at Disneyland. What 7 month old baby doesn’t sleep more than an hour during the day?? But she was so happy and pleasant and just PLEASED with all the commotion, it was so fun.
Ridge could hardly wait to meet Chewbacca, but as we were waiting for our turn in this little hidden hallway thing, he could hear him and he got a little nervous, next his huge body and hairy arm pulled this man into his room and ridge booked it!!! 😂 He started bolting it out of line! Hahaha. I die when I think about it ( it was so cute and sad. So real to him!) but we calmed him a little and brought him back, he warmed up eventually and thought chewy was awesome. Probably his favorite thing that day.
We walked almost ten miles until both kids dropped and peaced out of that place. No parade for us- the stamina you need to make it to the parade is impressive! Not this time 😂
My parents are the best party pals though! we got back to our hotel that night and kids down, after 11 we had pizza delivered to our hotel and ate it in their room like a couple of teenagers! Pizza never tasted so good. 🍕 Disney day 1 down. 👊🏻

to that time my dad definitively proved he was the cooler one of us.
Tip # 147: Make your own custom kid’s bunks! Give them a unique and private space when sharing a small room and save money! 💰 ⭐️This set for my boys was completed within the last weekend and derived from my husband and my imaginations. In total we spent about $40 💵during the project because we used what we had on hand mostly. Flimsy uninteresting metal bunks are more than $100 easy! ⭐️This included a stockpile of 70% off wood from Home Depot’s damaged wood pile (the front panels, and a sheet of particle board for one of the bed platforms). Also, scraps of wood from other projects-including small chunks of 2x4s used to create the climbing 🧗♂️ wall, hinges we picked up for for pennies at a discount store long ago, and sheets of wood thrown out at my husband’s work. The stain was leftover from other projects, and so was the paint for the LEGO/activity table (it is on the walls making the mountain ⛰ mural-and our bathroom color-bought in the discount paint 🎨 at Home Depot!) The grey for the climbing wall was $2 in the mis-tint paints. I bought a sheet for $1 at the thrift store to create the curtains. Even that stool was made from wood scraps and leftover paint from this room. ⭐️Left to do: pick up some lamps to install in the individual spaces, and a light to replace the fan. We plan on getting those at Goodwill’s $1 Monday. ⭐️The kids absolutely love it. It makes the room much bigger getting the beds on top of each other. A very important perk in my girl’s room as well. (Theirs is a House 🏡 with a tree and yard mural. It is adorable and made of pallet wood.) #reallifefrugalliving #frugalliving #frugal #frugalife #moneysavingtips #savemoney #creative #diy #bunkbeds #frugalmom #pennypincher #unique #forthekids #coolparents
Proud parents. Having a baby is a great gift, despite all the difficulties you feel so enormously happy and the partners love grows bigger. I couldn’t imagine I’d be so happy being a mum, I love doing everything with my baby and my husband is a huge help I wouldn’t cope so well without him. #happymummy #coolparents
