First Cousins, Twice Removed

Liam got a visit from two of his First Cousins Twice Removed!  Eddie and his sister Judy just loved our little Liam.  And, if you doubt my calculations on them being his First Cousins Twice Removed, please check my work using the chart below!  I put Liam in the "Self" box.  :)

I hope I did this correctly.  If my mother is cousins with Eddie and Judy, then it would make sense that Liam's closeness to this "cousins relationship" is separated by two steps (or two generations, these being mine and then his) which would be the "twice removed" part of the expression.  Right?  Please double-check me!
