Boy Mom Blog Hop - Welcome & Giveaway

All About Me
Welcome to our little corner of the blogging world.  I am so happy you have come for a visit.  I have linked up to the Boy Mom Blog Hop  over at the MOB Society (Mothers of Boys).  My name is Meaghan and along with my wonderful husband we have two boys (ages 2 and 4).  I have a more detailed description about My Family here.

This blog is a place for me to share about our lives, activities for children, crafts I make, and anything else that comes along. Check our the labels on the right side for different categories.

In addition to being at home with the boys, I also work along side with my husband on our family business Integrity Fire and Control Systems Inc.  My husband is the field technician and I am our office manager.  If that doesn't keep me busy enough I am growing Meaghan's Home Daycare, and I sell my sewing projects at Me Again Creations.  Praise the Lord that all of our endeavours and businesses are growing to support our family.  Our plans sometimes change but we are trusting in the Lord's guidance. Our next family adventure will be homeschooling using a Waldorf curriculum!

Great Games for Boys
My boys love to play.  At the moment they are rather young so we don't play too many games per say. MJ is 2 years old 
He mostly likes puzzles and peek-a-boo.

TJ is 4 years old
He does play a few computer games from TVO kids and other similar websites on occasion.
He also likes those memory games where you flip 2 cards and try to find a match.
I just started to teach him Tic-Tac-Toe this week and he sort of understands it.
He loves this game called Eagle Eyes that we heard on at Sparkle Stories.  It is just like Hide-And-Seek but the person who is it stays in one spot to look around for the other kids.  Everyone else hides but has to be able to see the 'Eagle'.


Great Books for Boys
Last year the topic was books.  I had prepared this post last week and realized this morning that the new topic was games.  So I thought I'd include this anyways. My boys love to read.  There are so many wonderful that they enjoy.  Here are a few of our favourite authors and books. I'm not too sure on the appropriate ages so I'm guessing.

MJ's favs (good for 1-3years)
Heads by Matthew VanFleet
Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb - board book
Put me in the Zoo - board book
My World - Good Night Moon companion book

TJ's favs (good for 3-6years)
Bernstein Bears - all of their books are great
Robert Munch - we love all the ones we have read
Elephant and Piggy books by Mo Willems - also great for young readers
