A play day in the Country

This was the first sight I saw as I rounded the corner
to my niece's home Saturday morning..
Her husband planted cotton for the first time this year...
As far as I could see was a sea of fluffy white cotton..

from across the pond the cotton looked like snow.

The purpose of this play day in the country was to try to get some pictures of my mom with my brother's grand babies..

Abbigail and her best friend Marley playing in the peanut hay her daddy grew this past summer.

It was a windy, cloudy day with a few rays of sun
 every so often

Pepper kept a close eye on us

Super dog

The cotton was lite as air ... Miss Maddie playing,
 hope she made a wish...

Taylor man sneakin some of uncle Mit Mit's cotton

Miss Bailey trying her best to hang onto hers.. the wind kept blowing it away.

after lots and lots of giggles

many funny faces from Mr. Kaiden

gobs of pictures

and a massive hay fight that I have to share more of with ya'll cause it was that awesome ....

I think we may have gotten some pretty pictures of momma with a few of her great grands.. 

I know my brother was sitting on one of those clouds with my daddy laugh and smiling the entire time.. 
Times like these are when I miss them the most ... 
Sending hugs and kisses to heaven and thanking the Lord above for every moment I get to spend with these sweet babies that are growing up way to quick...

Hope October was as sweet for each of you
 as it has been for me ..
Hello November ... hugs to each of you, Cherry

  7. Seeing that cotton reminds me of home in South Mississippi! I used to drive about 30 miles to work over in Mobile AL, and I would always go "the back way" through the country instead of the interstate highway. I would pass acres and acres of beautiful fluffy white cotton! I always loved seeing it! Looks like fun was had by all! Hugs Carol

  8. It looks like everyone had a fun time.."Making memories"...

  9. What gorgeous images Cherry. Great camera work! The cotton looks like southern snow to me. LOL! Beautiful!

  10. Fabulous photos and great memories! It very much reminded me of our family farm in Mississippi. We have a horse named pepper too!
