This 1981 home movie captures a joint birthday party for the Munoz children in Port Arthur. Christopher turned one, while older sister Jennifer turned four. In between the traditional singing of “Happy Birthday” and consumption of birthday cake, the children play party games like a Winnie the Pooh piñata and Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
