Today marks the beginning of the next in game holiday, Children's Week.  I'm interested to see how it has been revamped.  I know there are achievements associated with the holiday that weren't around in the past, so this shall be interesting.  Although… free pets! Woo!

Can I keep her, please?

Today also marks the beginning of the Child's Play charity auction over at The Hunting Lodge.  Go here for the list of auction items as well as the information on how to get started.  I have my eye on a few items already and hope it won't break my bank.  Time to grind more dailies I guess.  Err, wait, I am paid a salary rate.  Well, that won't work… anywho, go check it out!

  • Logged in this morning and got my orphan, already to go when the whisle blows at 3:30 😀
    Going now to check out the auctuon too

  • Haha, i love childrens week- the pets are pretty cool. I still have my turtle, need another year to get veteran nanny though.

    Ohhh auction time!

  • That orphan is a bomb totting terrorist that is using innocent adventurers like us to distribute her payload across Azeroth and Outland… (Or so I have been reliably informed)

    Steal her pet and leave her to fend for herself!

  • @KitnKat & @Kromus – I certainly hope you check out the auction 🙂

    @Kit, @Kromus, & @Gnomer – The pets are one of my favorite parts of this week. *nodnod* As for the children running some sort of ‘operation’.. hmm.. well, I can turn a blind eye if I get a cut.

    Crap, guess I shoulda taken that payoff then, eh?


We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
