Generation 2: Aerissa and Caleb

The night quickly gave way to morning before Aerissa realized it.  She could hardly believe she spent the entire night talking with her father.

As she was saying good-bye, she noticed a few other ghosts were out to play during the last bit of darkness.  Unfortunately, they scared an early morning mourner, who promptly fainted in the middle of the cemetery.  Aerissa quietly snickered to herself, but was glad she had not met the same fate when her father snuck up on her last night.

As Aerissa walked to her car, she paused by the entrance to the mausoleum.  She'd heard stories about a magical, mystical garden gnome that could be found inside the catacombs.  She considered returning some other time to explore, but decided the exhaustion of staying up all night would not serve her nerves well.  After all, she'd heard stories about mysterious injuries and people getting lost inside as well.

The sun started to show itself, lighting more and more of the cemetery.  Aerissa heard a strange whooshing sound behind her.  Looking over her shoulder, she could see the ghosts returning to their respective gravestones for the day.

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!
