Halloween Cousins

Wednesday was the night of Northwest Arctic Borough Mayor Siikauraq Whiting's annual Halloween party for extended Harris/Wilson family. This is a huge family and even with only a fraction of the cousins in attendance it was a full house. Uyaana is one of those cousins. He was happy to be able to put on his Halloween Costume early. For the last four Halloween's Uyaana has been a power Ranger. He wanted to be one again this year but I couldn't find a costume big enough for him, so this year he is a ghoulish vampire thing. Here is Uyaana with Siikauraq, his first cousin, once removed. Uyaana has literally hundreds of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd cousins. Poor kid is gonna need a mail order bride.

This handsome fella is a 3rd cousin. Can you see the resemblance?

I'm not sure how Darth is related but I'm sure it's there somewhere.

Here is Katak. Another cousin. Second cousin once removed to be exact. I wonder if anyone ever told her that clowns are creepy.

How in the world does one get their hair to do that? Interesting.

You have to be very creative to do that. Either that, or part your hair down the middle, get a styrofoam cup, set it on your head, and pull your hair around it, secure with a pony tail at the bottom of the cup and VOILA! a cool hairstyle, to go perfect with your homemade clown costume. :)

Awesome. I have more first cousins then Uyaana, 67 to be exact, and I'm talking for-real-not-once-removed first cousins! On my mom's (Harris) side only that is!

P.S. I stole your pictures!

Yeah, you definately have him beat, but does that 67 include only blood first cousins or does it include adopteds?? Uyaana has 43 blood first cousins on the Jones side. That does not include 4 (I think) that were adopted in. I should figure out how many second cousins he has sometime. Probably close to 200.

Uyaana has 6 first cousins and 12 second cousins from my side of the family. Anatuuq.
