|One of my lovely cousins|
One of my cousins asked on Facebook if anyone knew how many grandchildren our grandparents had. There were eleven children in Mom's family, and I was able to count all of the grandchildren. There were a total of 34! One died in infancy and one died several years ago. That means I have 31 living first cousins - and that's only on Mom's side.
That made me curious enough to count the grandchildren on Dad's side. There were ten children. I think there were 28 grandchildren. Two have died as adults. That means I have 25 living first cousins on Dad's side.
Do the math and I have 56 first cousins!
Family is wonderful.
