When I was a wee lass, I asked a lot of questions.  While I was generally always considered a “bright kid,” most young children have those moments.

When I turned six, my birthday was much like today.  It fell on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

I remember waking up and it being almost Christmas-like… I knew there would be presents.  My parents told me my presents were hidden throughout the house; one for each year I was.  (Ooh sneaky, learning and practicing can be fun!)

I also remember looking at the wall calendar that day.  Being ever so astute, I noticed that there was someone else's name printed on the calendar on my birthday.

So, I asked my mother: “There is a king who's 6 today, too?”

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!
