Telling My Story: Celebrating our birthday 60 years ago

Becky and Dennis Margheim with
grandparents Mollie and John Margheim
 
While thinking of the birthday my brother and I will celebrate tomorrow, I reminisced through photos from our birthday party in 1955 when we turned 8 years old. Here are some photos from that party with our school classmates, neighbors, and cousins.

dining room into the kitchen.

while our grandpa John Margheim listens.

It was typical for our parents to ask us to play the piano 
at any family gathering. It looks like our birthday 
party was no exception. And of course if they asked, we did it. 

I remember so well the white satin blouse and purple corduroy "jumper" I
 was wearing because I really liked that outfit. 

Sixty years ago! Sometimes it seems like only four or five years. Happy Birthday, Dennis.
