puttin' on the ritz...

Hey! Back from a roadtrip weekend where we went to Miss Shannon's funeral, saw family, and Daddy preached this morning in Danville, VA! whew! Oh, and I forgot to show you I've upgraded to my next carseat! (a big thank you to Auntie's friend, Katie!)

Speaking of family, what do I call the children of Mommy's cousin? Can anyone help me out here? Well, anyway, that's how Jonah, Eva, & Luke are related to me. I loved seeing them again.

Eva & I really hit it off when we're together!

And how much cracker can I shove into my mouth and all over myself at one time? I guess I really love to put ON the ritz... :)

  1. That would be her third cousins. I have third cousins that I know and am rather close to. So go Caroline. It's family. Thank God for family. Great seeing you'll yesterday. Hope it want be long before we see you again. We love you.

  2. We have the same problem with some "many times removed" cousins of Ben's that are the same age as E -- we just call them cousins and leave it at that - simpler that way!

  3. Kate is still in the infant seat...the law in NC is they have to be 1 year AND 20lbs to turn around. :-)

    Wish we'd known Marc was preaching in Danville...might have driven up. :-)

  4. oops- should've been a little more clear on that one-- she isn't facing forward yet-- she just outgrew the infant seat when her feet are flopping over the end & my back is breaking carrying her in it! So we've got the bigger seat that will face forward when she's a year, but right now it's still facing the back.

    According to my RootsMagic Genealogy software relationship calculator, your cousin's children are second cousins to your child. They have one set of great grandparents in common and are the equal number of generations removed from those ancestors, thus no "removed." (Easy way to remember it is that cousins have the same grandparents, second cousins the same great grandparents, etc.)
