I think you should pick the ones that you think would do well with the responsibility and then get the other ones a small gift just to let you know that you are thinking of them, but are sorry that you could only pick (the number).

Well all or none would be the cleanest.  But all sounds like too much to me.  Sounds like it would be 4 FGs and 3 RBs.  Ugg.  I suppose if you’re OK with it, why not?  But if it were me, and I felt that awkward about choosing, I would just have none.

As for choosing among them, do you think the cousins you don’t see would be understanding, or rather their parents?  it might be OK to just exclude them, but it depends on family dynamics. I wouldn’t typically recommend excluding younger siblings only.  But some of that depends on th kids’ personalities.   Excluding the 2 yr old girl might fly.  She’s too young to care.  (And therefore the parents should understand.  You could explain it’s alot of kids, and thought she’d never miss it.)  However the 4 yr old girl will probably know she’s not included in something her 7 yr old sister is.  (I have a 4 year old daughter.)  If this girl is a “girly girl”  she’ll most likely be disappointed.  Boys are kind of a crap shoot as to whether or not they’ll care.
