Ghosts, Werewolves, and Vampires, oh my!

I don't believe in ghosts... or at least I didn't think I did... until we got one!  We have a ghost.  You know, they say that animals and small children can see ghosts.  Jaden used to call us in her room nightly because she saw a ghost.  Once, Mike even asked her if it was a nice ghost to which she replied, "No, he's an ANGRY ghost!"  Great.  Then she wanted to put glow-in-the-dark stars on her ceiling because, "they keep the ghosts away."  Humoring her, I brought out a box of my old stars from college (I love them, don't judge) and we put them all over her ceiling.  After that, we never had to go back in her room for ghosts.  Then, one cold December night (are you scared yet?), Tabitha was over babysitting for the girls.  Jaden came out of her room and in a quiet, somber voice, she said to Tabitha, "There's someone in my room."  If I was Tabitha, I probably would have run screaming!  Again, I just chalked it up to her being a kid.

Fast forward a few weeks... Mike and I were getting ready to go to bed.  We were both in our room when we heard a LOUD thud.  It sounded like something crashed into the side of our house.  Mike said it was probably raccoons or rabbits outside (yeah, with a wrecking ball!) and not to worry.  Yeah right.  I saw Paranormal Activity 2.

Wednesday night, Mike and I were watching a movie in the family room when out of our computer speakers, we hear an angry man yelling!  We couldn't make out what he was saying.  Mike said it was just interference picking up someone's phone conversation, but I've seen White Noise!  I know that the angry man ghost is trying to tell us something.  If I had to put money on it, I would bet that he is telling us to get the heck out of dodge!  Yes, sir!

Last night, Kalie came over to watch New Moon.  We were sitting on the couch in the family room when I heard, clear as day, a whispering... "I SEE YOU."  I fumbled for the remote and paused the DVD.  After freaking out for a short second, Kalie just laughed and said it was her phone... STILL.  I know we have an angry ghost.

Speaking of New Moon...

Book vs. Movie

The movie wins by a teensy tiny bit!

The book was definitely more detailed.  In a way though, I think that hurt it.  I kind of got lost in parts of the book.  I felt like there was too much focus on the history of the wolves and the tribe.  Also, I missed Edward like crazy in the book!  The movie was a perfect blend.  I also thought it was pretty awesome seeing the wolves phase.  I still recommend reading the book first, but definitely watch the movie as soon as you're done!

Oh, and in case you are wondering... I'm still Team Edward but Jacob was really starting to win me over in the movie!!  Seriously Bella, werewolves AND vampires?  Can you not find a hot HUMAN guy??

I didn't believe in ghosts either until we moved into our house. My husband heard a loud thud in the garage a few times and when he went out there - nothing. There were a few times we woke to our one year old in his crib belly laughing - when we went in there he wouldn't look at us just in the corner of the room - freaky! Our babysitter and my husband swore they heard someone walking barefoot on the tile. My husband and I went through our house asking it to please not bother our family. Sounds crazy but it worked and I now believe in ghosts!

girl that's creepy! I think I would have to move! I am not a fan of scary things, I'm just big chicken. I used to love watching all things scary, going to the most terrifying haunted houses, riding the most scary rides... now a days, you'll be lucky to see me walk into our basement by myself... creeps me out!
