Sammy's Second Cousin or cousin once removed or how does this work again?

Here is Sammy with Daddy's cousin Courtney. So does that make Courtney Sammy's second cousin? If so, then how is Courtney's kids related cousin-wise to Sammy? (We could all just pretend we live in Hawaii and everyone is "Cousin" there!)

This is also to prove that there is another blonde in the family...not just Daddy.

Your parents' first cousins are your first cousins once removed. (Both ways--your first cousins' kids are also your first cousins once removed.) Your parents' first cousins' kids are your second cousins. I always have to explain this to my cousins every Thanksgiving when they insist on calling me "Aunt Tracy" to their kids. "I am their COUSIN! Just like YOU are my cousin! Jeesh!"
