Family Togetherness

I can't believe January is almost over. This month has slipped away so quickly because we've spent most of it playing with my family as one big extension of Christmas break. Having family around reminds you just why you love them. And why you don't. {Just kidding}. This was the first time in...I don't know, a long time that all my siblings have been together. Unfortunately I only have 2 pictures to summarize all the good times we had. Fortunately both pictures happen to summarize exactly what we did.
1. Eat food. Seriously, all we did was eat. And constantly at that. We did go bowling once, but mostly we just ate. This is my sister Marci demonstrating first hand how efficient we are at consuming food. It's a Richman thing, Brad almost couldn't keep up.
2. Kodak moment. My family loves to tease each other. It's how we show affection. Being the youngest, naturally I receive the brunt of it. And because I'm so awesome I am able to handle it with the class and dignity of a toddler. This pose, of me and Brad, is one of a kind. It takes a lot of practice to perfect the one-handed self portrait and my family was quick to point out that we are the pro's. It's very true. We always take the one-handed self portraits and surprisingly they are the only ones I ever like. There are hundreds, possibly thousands, of these in the family archives waiting to be cherished, no doubt, by our posterity.
P.S. we also did have a real family photo taken while everyone was here. Maybe that will come later.
So there you have it. Family togetherness at it's finest. Love you fam! Thanks for playing with us (and for helping contribute to our increasing waistlines).

It sure was a great time. I don't think anyone that knows us will believe you when you say I "almost couldn't keep up." :-)

Notice I did say ALMOST. Everyone knows that you could out any Richman, anytime. I wouldn't dare take that claim to fame away from you.

How fun!! With me also being the youngest, I think I take the teasing with stride but everyone else thinks I don't. That is probably why I get picked on so much! You are Brad are so stinkin cute.

That is so true, you guys definitely are pros at the one handed pictures! You always look so good in them too!

Rachel said...

Dito to what Stacey said...you ARE good at those! (in my opinion they are hard to master!) PS--your hair looks fab!

Well, I wasn't going to say anything...but our success at the one-handed self portrait MIGHT have something to do with Brad's monkey arms, which are just a titch (6 inches) longer than they should be.

See, while awkward and disproportional when fitting shirts, monkey arms do indeed serve a purpose!

That food looks so yummy! I know I can only see the tortilla, but I am sure the filling is so tasty! ...I am a nursing mother and I am always hungry lately!

I am glad that bowling made the list of events. I have to say, you have the one arm self portrait down. Brad could take me to school in an eating contest so I don't even want to think about what the Richmans would do to me.
