Can you believe that Portal was released almost 10 years ago? Do you remember playing that game for the first time and being blown away by the awesomness that is the Portal Gun? We can't forget about GlaDOS. She was my favorite part. I remember picking the game up as part of The Orange Box and loving all of those games.

Relive that youthful wonderment as we let Princess Boo (6) jump into Portal for the first time. She learns quickly, but it is fun to see her trying to figure out who the other person is that she keeps on seeing. Once she gets the hang of the portals and (and least the blue half of) the Portal Gun, she has a blast with it. Watch her tackle the first few puzzles with relative ease and get ready for the next part in the series, coming soon!

The cake is a lie.

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!
