My cousin, Mary, is one of those people that always knows how people are related–I mean, what you call it.  “Second cousin once removed” and all that stuff.  I’ve always KINDA understood after she explained it to me (several hundred times, I’m sure), but I soon let those complicated cousin definitions mosey on out of my brain.

Well, this beautiful little baby girl came to Kansas from Tennessee with her mommy and grandmother to see her twin first cousins once removed graduate from high school.  I’m so glad her great aunt had the idea for a photo shoot because I got to meet these lovely ladies!  Now if you find these family relationships confusing as I once did, I suggest you read this.  I found it fun and fascinating, but I’m kinda geeky.  You might find it boring or mind-boggling 😉  Oh, but before you go off and read about cousins, be sure to look at the portraits of this adorable little lady first!
