Your Party Pictures


Me, milking. What I normally look like–jeans, t-shirt, sweatshirt, chore boots, hair pulled back. NO MAKEUP. Photo taken by Natalie Cyphers.

I didn’t take near enough pictures of the party due to the general craziness of the day, but thank goodness some of you did! I have enjoyed so much browsing your photos, and I want to share them with everyone. And so, without further ado, here are your party pictures!

CindyP’s pictures
(Don’t miss this new one Cindy put up this morning with a little video of waking up on the farm with all the animal sounds.)

CITR Party Dogs

P.S. If you were here and took pictures on party day and have them posted somewhere, let me know and I’ll add them to the list here! (I just posted the ones I know about.) If you have them posted in a Facebook album, make sure you have the album set to allow “Everyone” to view.

P.P.S. I love my cow.

    I love all the beautiful pictures, except that they make me really sad that I had to miss the party – again! Maybe one day I can be there. Thanks to everyone who took photos.

    :fairy: Loved all the pictures of the farm and animals. The food looks like it was marvelous. Especially liked the picture of “52” and the one of you Suzanne milking the cow.. I liked your hair pulled up.
    For some reason I couldn’t get Cindy’s link to open. Perhaps it’s my computer.
    Fun was had by all!

    I couldn’t view CindyP’s pictures either, nor Jason’s(because I’m not a member of Facebook), but the ones I did see looked great. Everyone had a great time by the looks of it-animals too.

  4. Johanna says:

    Great fun! To see Cindy P’s pictures, click the link then go to “home” and you’ll see her two posts among the current posts. (I’m sure Suzanne will fix the link when she gets up!)

    • Suzanne McMinn says:

      I just clicked CindyP’s link to check, and it works! She has a sub-category set up for her CITR party pictures (and her trip here) so the link opens to the page that gives you all the posts in the CITR sub-category and you can click through to each post to see all the pictures.

    Thanks to everyone for generously sharing their pictures. I especially enjoyed Natalie’s pictures of the woods and surrounding countryside. Sure do miss my country roots!

  6. CindyP says:

    Thanks for all the links!! So many more pics!

    P.S. I fixed the link 😉

    Great video/audio Cindy! It was great to wake up hearing everyone ‘talking’ the morning I was there. Only thing missing was BP bawling after Glory Bee the night before LOL! Great pics everyone, too! I didn’t take but a few – too busy TALKING? :yes:

  8. Amy Tipton says:

    Hi Suzanne, love your blog and I want to come to the next party. I live in Huntington, WV and have a small farm too. We just got started in 2008 with the animals. Such a great life. You are awesome.

  9. texwisgirl says:

    We love your cow too!!! 🙂

    :happyflower: :woof:
    Thank you all for the pictutes, we need to charter a bus from Ohio so I can go next year.
    Your do becomes you! You look lie a teenager, at first I thought it was some one at the party, or Morgan, it looks beautiful pulled back, it shows your face and your nice profile–and you dont really need much makeup, that wonderful mountain air will put a glow in your cheeks, and the cold wind will turn your lips pink or red!
    What do you use on your hands? Maybe a homemade skin cream and lip balm is in the future? I bet someone you know has bees for honey, and you have cream and butter. Something to ponder over the winter.
    Thank you.

  11. Louise Clark says:

    Thank you for all of the great pictures. Wish I could have been there. Maybe one year, if I can convince someone to travel with me from Alabama. I have canned all summer and now I want to try soap making. I live in town but we made our whole back yard into a vegetable garden this year. Love the animals and your great blogs. Keep up the good work.

  12. Christina says:

    Thanks for sharing the pictures!! It was fun to look through them all!

    SUZANNE! You’re SOOOOO PRETTY!! I love the picture with your hair back milking BP. And all the others with your long curly hair down. You’ve got such a fresh face. Gorgeous!! :yes:

  13. momma-leigh says:

    Hey Louise Clark, I am in North GA, I would love to car pool together, now if I could just convince the hubby that it is something that I have to do…haha

  14. Miss Becky says:

    well I checked them all out and their fantastic photos. I especially love the one of Boomer and the other dogs too. thanks for sharing. :yes:

  15. Patrice says:

    I’m glad you put these up for the rest of us to enjoy. Looks like everyone enjoyed the visit!

  16. umstetter says:

    I live in North Ga too, so maybe we can get a car pool going. That would be fun! We’ll have to see what weekend it is and make some plans.

  17. umstetter says:

    And I do NOT know why I’m showing “umstetter” instead of “Darlene in North GA”. Guess it’s because I’m logged into the forum instead of my Google ID.

    Love the pic of you with your hair up!!!
