How many cousins do you have and are you friends with them?

Jeffrey and I talk when we see each other.
Ronnie, Austin, Roger and Brandi all live in Texas or are in the service and we never see each other.

I was lucky enough to be raised with 4 girl cousins my age. The rest were close in age.
I've lost 2, 1 in a plane crash and my best friend to a brain tumor. I am fairly close to the others. we get toether a few times ayear for a pot luck dinner and catch up. My kids are close to my brothers kids but no one on my dh side. They are not friendly people

I have 12 first cousins on my side of the family and we are all close. We live all over Canada but when we can get together we do. All but 1 of them are married and between them there are 25 kids that my kids are friends with. this is all from my moms side as my dad was an only child.
Hubby has 22 but we are not as close to all of them just some.

Hugs Debbie

I have 30 cousins. I am friendly with all of them, but there is a wide age range and live miles apart from some. I don't think I would consider any my best friend, but a couple of them closer to my age are close friends. Although the opportunities are few and far between to all be together it is always fun when most of us can .
When I married DH he came with more cousins than I can count. I have become good friends with many of them too.

I have 14 first cousins 10 male and 4 female, no I do not see them often, some I couldn't even tell you what they looked like or know where they live they are spread accross Australia. They are the kids of the Aunts or Uncles we didn't see much as kids as my parents didn't get on with them.
I do have a few I see every 5 or so yrs or if something of importance pops up.
