Photo Friday

I came across another pic of one of my birthday parties. The photo is damaged, but still okay.

Birthday Party
I posted another pic on an earlier post.
I'm not sure why in this pic I'm wearing socks and tennies, and in the other (from the same day), I have on black tights.
I do know my mom made the dress I'm wearing.

My birthday parties were famous!
My dad would act like a gorilla and throw pennies.
We squealed with joy.

There were innocent games, like Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
Sometimes the kids got fun packages to take home.
I still remember the names of the girls pictured: Susan, Jeanine, Eugenie, Lisa, me, Jane, Kelly, Kerry.

Years later, I was still referred to as the girl with the good parties.
I was lucky in that regard--my childhood memories are filled with fun moments.

Maybe you changed because all the other girls had on white socks. That's something would have done. It sure looks like everyone is having a terrific time.

What a great photo! I remember birthday parties in the 70s, particulary sleepover parties. What did parents do without VCRs and DVD players? Oh right, we actually had to interact with one another. Good memories.
