Brown Family Holiday Pictures (1968-present)

KODTMX13536.PNGIt has been the Brown family tradition for 48 years to document each year’s passage with an annual holiday photo.  Beginning in 1968, the year  my parents got married, and continuing through the present day, you can watch as we’ve changed, made (bad) hair and fashion choices, and grown to include a fifth member.  Below you will find our journey beginning with a picture of the house we grew up in (and my parents still live in to the present day).

Our house built and purchased by my parents upon their marriage.
