@cristina.voorsanger:  I feel like it would be kind of rude to exclude her children, especially if they live with them. You may not have met them, but they (I’m sure) consider themselves a family and to invite some of the family’s children and not others is sure to cause division and upset.

If you’re not that close with the cousin, then why invite his kids, let alone the girlfriend’s kids too? I’d make it a clean break and just invite the parents in this case, leaving ALL the kids out of it. 

If you MUST invite the kids, I kind of agree with MoonlitMagnolia–I think you should all-or-nothing it.

I don’t think so (maybe technically you’re supposed to) but really you could play dumb.  If you invited your cousin and a +1 you wouldn’t necessarily include their children too…those kids aren’t your family per say.
