So here it is, thanksgiving and I've spent the day with family. First of all, my family is so nice. I'm fortunate for that. Sadly though, how horrible is it that I could walk past my family in the street, bump shoulders w them & I still wouldn't recognize them??! There are 2 cousins here that I haven't seen in 4 years, then 7 years before that....and nope, wouldn't know em. Then there is the aunt & uncle in connecticut that I don't even remember the last time I saw them! They could walk in right now & I'd think they were robbers. Then throw in the cousin in denver that I used my powers of deduction to figure out who he was....and I feel horrible!
Now those are all on my dad's side. My mom's side gets further out before I get lost on who's who. But it's a smaller family tree so that's a pretty good excuse.
I should get to know my family. Or at least be able to recognize them if I pass them on the street.

OMG.. You'd HATE my family.

My Dad is the 2nd oldest out of 13, so I'm 4th oldest out of 29 cousins!! Most of whom I would recognize and others maybe not. Most of us are on facebook. We even have overlap between my generation and the next. So far, there are 17 kids between 7 of us in the next generation (my kids line). Did that make sense?

My Mom is number 4 out of 5, but I'm still in the middle, #6 of 10 (All of whom I would recognize and know).
