Wessels-Jansen Family Christmas

Wessels Family Christmas

Originally uploaded by hjoew

I hope everyone’s holidays have been as good as mine this year. It’s good to be with family (including a few not expected to be in town this year).

Here’s my Dad’s side of the family. A lot of Wessels’ and a few Jansens. We have been getting together at my Grandma’s house on Christmas Eve in Springfield Township for as long as I can remember.
