# Family of 138+

With recent tragedy striking our family, several get-togethers have already occured and more planning is in process. I started thinking about how many invites I would have to send out to involve my immediate family and those just outside of that criteria. I was overwhelmed with all the counting and I guess I never realized how many of us there are/were. Here's what I came up with:

My husband and I have a family of 4.

My parents and my siblings (including steps) = 8

My husband's parents and his siblings (including steps) =  11

My children's 1st cousins (children of DH and my siblings) = 18

My aunts and uncles = 14

My 1st cousins (children of my aunts and uncles) = 30

DH's aunts and uncles = 11

DH's 1st cousins (children of DH's aunts and uncles) = 42

That is 138 of us and then you add in the 4 direct grandparents of me and DH and that is 142. If I take out the 4 people that have already passed away, that leaves us with 138 of us. Wowzers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fill this out for your family and see what you come up with!!

My husband and I have a family of 5.
My parents and my siblings = 9
My husband's parents and his siblings=  10
My children's 1st cousins (children of DH and my siblings) = 23
My aunts and uncles = 18
My 1st cousins (children of my aunts and uncles) = 41
DH's aunts and uncles = 24
DH's 1st cousins (children of DH's aunts and uncles) = 52 (that we're in contact with)
My Grandparents (including step) = 6
DH's grandparents = 4

So that brings us to 192, not even counting the family that we don't talk to. Although I have a lot, DH's side repopulates like bunnys. And now I have ahead ache from all the math!

I have no idea how many people are on either side, nor does my husband.

I have too many to count. I would seriously have to put some effort into it.

DH's aunts and uncles = 48

DH's 1st cousins (children of DH's aunts and uncles) = 65 (This is just a rough estimate, we think there is a lot more...my MIL has 20 siblings and most have huge families of their own, so we really don't even know how many there are in total, probably a lot more than this)

Total=166. If you were to include 2nd and 3rd cousins, great aunts and uncles, etc we have around 300 total. My husband has a super large family.

This but I'll say my grandparents have 15 grand babies and almost as many great grand babies. It's about the same on dh side.

Quoting CrystalYaris:
