This home movie from 1965 captures scenes of the Gonzalez family at home celebrating birthdays. Cristela Gonzalez hosts a slumber party, and keeping with strict slumber party tradition, she and her friends break out into a pillow fight. Her older sister then celebrates her birthday at a party where she and her friends dance enthusiastically, including some fancy footwork by the record player and a conga line. Also included are scenes of girls playing volleyball on the playground.
