Pies and Wow, Wow, Wow

This morning whilst Baby G was napping, Milo and I decided to do some baking. Policemans helmet and PJ's are optional - as it was 7.30 am!







These pics just reminds me how much I really dislike this kitchen! Milo made a pastry man and some mini quiche. I made sausage and tomato pie.





and he wants to cook again tomorrow!!

Then we went to the library for some new books, he was a bit upset as his friend Joan the librarian wasn't there and she lets him stamp his own books - but when we got home and opened the front door his mood soon changed as there on the doormat was 5 pieces of post all for him.

There weren't many other words apart from wow, wow, wow and ooh as he saw 3 gorgeous bird photographs made into postcards from Leanne, all with different denomination stamps on them,



a cute card and a bundle of stamps from Lisa & Sarah - I think they had raided their own stamp collection as there were some quite old stamps too,



and a pretty Rosalie Quinlan card ( I might just keep this ) and another bundle from Rachel.



I think he was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of stamps and didn't know what to look at first, but it was the first thing he told Hub about when we met him off the bus after work.

Milo wants to say a BIG BIG thank you to you all for your generosity and thought that has gone into what he has recieved so far. You sure know how to make a little boy happy.

Now to go and find something we can do tomorrow.

I think that baking-in-a-helmet style statement could really catch on! He's such a cutie.

What fantastic post - Milo looks delighted! And I am seriously impressed with you both baking at 7.30 in the morning (especially in a policeman's helmet!) - I am struggling to get out of bed then and I meant to be getting three little monsters ready for school - it's a good job they are all learning to do it for themselves!

I think a chef's hat would be in order for Milo, what a marvellous pastry chef he is, quiche really is one of my favourites. I could also do with a slice of your pie right now! Milo's stamp collection is coming along at a fast pace! x

Hello! Thanks for dropping by my blog - I've had a lovely time looking at all your lovely photos, and reading about your family and life.

Baking whilst wearing pjs and a policeman's helmet sounds like something that would happen here! The results of your efforts look delicious.

Take care :-)

Gotta love cooking with a toddler! Jackson and Milo sound like they are at very similar stages! Love cooking, hate sleeping! Glad to hear that Milo is loving his postcards.

Lina said...

Wow, that's SO cool. Isn't blogging great? I don't think I have your address any more but drop me an email and I'll add a Canadian one to his collection. Actually, wouldn't this make a great swap if we could get all our children to post a postcard to each other?

Ruth said...

Heh! Too funny... I bet you never would be up at 7:30 baking before you had children! Love the outfit :-D

Kate said...

Love the helmet! The pies look great!

Jackson LOVED the planes... BUT... his father LOVED the planes even more! What we thought would have been an hour long visit turned into 7 hours!! We got home in time for dinner! Don't know how you do it being up once a night still with Milo. I love my sleep too much! Amara's a great sleeper... 13 hours most nights even when sick! Hope you have a good Monday!
