After four kids and 15 birthday cakes I finally broke down and bought some simple piping tips and an icing spatula this week before Declan's birthday. Made my life so much easier. I'm honestly not sure why I waited so long. 🙄🤔

This sums up his personality better than any words I can come up with. 😆 Our goofy, sweet, energetic Declan dude is 5 today and we are so thankful for him and the joy he brings us each day! 💙💙💙💙💙 #declanjamesranem

A year never went by so quickly. Our little Astrid is one! As a fourth baby she's very laid back and will fall asleep even with lots of noisy siblings around, but she definitely has her own stubborn and feisty personality. We sure love this girl! ❤ #oneyearold #astridevangeline

An extra pair of hands is always helpful for piano practice. 🎶

I haven't picked up knitting or crochet needles in a LONG time, so with spring only four days away it seemed like the perfect time to finish this project. #impeccabletiming #astridsgrowingtoofast #mnweather

Who knew Aldi's vanilla yogurt worked so well as a hair gel and skin cream?!

When you have a bit of Irish heritage and you also love decorating for holidays any chance you get. 🍀#almostsaintpatricksday #irishamericanheritagemonth

This little monkey has been keeping me extra busy lately. She wants to be one of the big kids so bad, climb up and down the stairs to no end, and hang on my legs every chance she gets. Although hearing her say "Mamamamamamama" is pretty sweet. 😘

Somehow I always forget that along with the pulling-themselves-up-on-everything phase also comes the stuck-to-mom's-legs-everywhere-she-goes phase.
