    This home movie compilation from El Paso's Chavira-Estrada family documents the life and events of the family in 1977. Captured are an Easter celebration, complete with multiple Easter egg hunts and a cascarone fight in which even the dog isn't safe. Also on the reel are Mother's Day, Bobby Chavira's graduation from a middle school in the Ysleta School District, Becky's First Communion, and scenes of daily life. Keep an eye out for the little boy who is repeatedly filmed playing brooms and tennis rackets like a guitar.
