Grace I totally agree it IS about the moments. Sometimes we tend to forget that. Monday night I had Penny snuggled on my chest and she lets out this sigh like noise and out pokes one little foot from under the blanket. I had to peek! She was lying on her side with her front paws clasped together and her back legs splatted out! Her head was slightly tucked under and she had this look of pure bliss about her. Talk about falling instantly more in love with a pokey thing!

Default Not a contender!

And here we are, Early October. The beginning of the holiday Season. the beginning of Picture Season!
and since I have the cutest kids around, I figures I would enter into one or two of those photo contests that are out right now
Well, the hedgehogs had different feeling about this, so I wanted to share with you all a few of my "non-contenders" photos. Photos that I love love love, but that I'm pretty sure aren't winning any beauty contests, if you know what I mean!

Let's start with Titan. He was not all about this adventure AT ALL! he hates the flash, he hates the camera noise and he hated being woken up in the middle of the day to get half decent light. and I have a bite on my finger to prove that when he was done, he was DONE!

As you can see, he couldn't even be bothered to open his eyes at first:



But then, he decided he was just going to make an escape:



In all honesty, Sebastian wasn't much better. Though she kept her teeth to herself, she wasn't really a willing participant.

Really?



You can't see me...



Gayle was a bit better. But then, she got mealworms...





Her little fat pockets let us know she was getting a tad stressed though and so we took just a couple more shots and put her back to bed.



Tiberius came next, and he actually had a pretty good time even though you can't really tell from these photos. He took a "hide and seek" approach to the adventure.







After Tiberius came Gabriel. Our lovely Gabriel who decided, once he woke up, that this was a grand adventure and he would ham it up for the camera.
So we have waking Gabriel...



you're looking at me? Gabriel:



Acorns smell tasty!



I didn't do nuthin...



I'm a gourd!



And finally, Beauregard's turn for the camera came. He wasn't really all about it at first, but he did enjoy the scenery as it had lots of hidey spots.





I'm a pinecone!









All in all it was a grand time for humans and hedgehogs alike.

I love them all, especially the last one. I'd vote for you if you put them I to the contest!

I love your updates and your crew! I was giggling all the way through the pictures...especially at Sebastian's "...Really?" look. I think my favorite is definitely Gabe's "I didn't do nuthin..." pic. You should enter that one!

I have 4 out of this set that I am considering entering and I'm putting up another set today. Maybe Titan will participate today

Oh wow! A long afternoon with a different set for the kids. I'm not as pleased with this set as I was the last one and it shows in the photos. Not as hedgehog friendly as the leaves and gourds. However we did get some great photos that I'll share when it isn't right at bedtime. Another photo shoot scheduled for next weekend as well. The hedgies did a really great job today though and any failing in today's photos are in my set building skills and not in them. They all had great attitudes and were very cooperative models, for hedgehogs.

I always like looking at pictures of your gang. I'm sitting at home miserable with a thrown out back but those pics gave me a smile

I really enjoy sharing pictures of them with the wide world. This contest thing is tough because 1) I'm a perfectionist in these matters and 2) because they are all so wonderful and adorable and to me every photo is a winner, even though I'm a brutal editor/perfectionist. It's very awkward.
