My decision to re-open this Blog was not one that I took lightly. I played around with the idea for months. There were a few reasons that led me to do this. The first one is that I will soon be removing my families paranormal story from print. And the second reason is that I am currently working on a paranormal book which has led the activity in our home to pick back up. Unfortunately. it looks like I will be updating this blog again from time to time. If this Blog can help just one person see the signs and take action to keep themselves from going through what we have, it will be worth every word written.

Images, Video and EVP's.

After much debating, we decided to see if maybe we could reach a common ground with our unseen guest. In a nutshell, this family needs some peace and quiet. So, this is the Video, pictures and EVP's that we captured during our "amateur" Investigation.
These images were captured during the flashlight turning itself off and on, seemingly in response to our questions. Notice the small translucent ball of light just to the top left of the flashlight. We're not saying that it's paranormal. But it is odd that these images out of 50 were the only ones to show this.




The flashlight seemingly turns off and on in response to our questions. I know if the flashlight is set to super sensitive this can occur. But that's not the case here. You will notice in the video that I actually move and readjust the flashlight without it coming on.

There is a small digital recorder on the table just to the right of the flashlight.
This EVP was a response to a "thank you," it appears to say, "OK."

On taking the advice of a friend, we were trying to find out which room in our home it was residing in when asked about Lacie's room.(Which is a Pit Bull) We seem to get get a direct NO. LOL! But we were aware it doesn't like the dogs. So why not just go away, right? Guess spirits aren't really that smart.....and I'm a blond! LOLOLOL

Fresh Ideas.

I was talking with a friend today, that had some excellent ideas for dealing with our "presence."
Some of them, I had never really considered. But, if this presence is doing things to get our attention, then there has got to be a reason for it to want to make contact. Right? (Made sense to me.) So maybe we can find out why it is trying to get our attention. Just possibly, it is upset because we are trying to force it out when it hasn't got its message across? (That made sense to me too.) So maybe we can find out why it's here, and what it wants. And if it doesn't want to communicate with us, and listen to what we have to say about this in our home, then it will have to leave.(This is something we haven't tried. And at this point, I'm willing to try anything, if it will just let up on its stupid spook factor that keeps me awake at night. NO, I'm not afraid of this thing. But I am highly annoyed with it not letting me sleep. I really don't think it can scare me, I mean, unless it slams me into a wall, or hurls me across the room. Then I might be a little shook up.LOL! But anyway, as a family, we are going to try this tonight. We will naturally have tapes and cams running.So look for the update tomorrow.(Wish us luck.

Blissfully quite, for me at least.

I finally got a good nights sleep.Which means, good for me. Bad for Marty.
Marty was waking up around three again this morning.It was about the same time that the scream had happened the night before.He didn't hear or see anything. He was just suddenly woke up.

Our DIL said she was waking up around two thirty to our grandson screaming horribly.That is something he hasn't done since all of this first started. She said it sort of unnerved her.There was no reason for him to be screaming that way.

So if this is how it's going to be for me to get some sleep. I will gladly be the one to be awake just so my family can sleep peacefully.
I've already gotten used to cat napping during the day anyhow. LOL!

Footsteps

As Marty and I sit at our computers having coffee. We are listening to footsteps walk across our ceiling.
This is a first.I haven't heard this before.Makes me wonder, how the day......and night are going to be.

New Photos

New photos uploaded on the photos page.

Wonder why we're up at 5 am..

To start off with, we did go to the old school house to poke around a bit. We didn't get anything on the cam, but we did get an EVP that I will post later.

The scratching wasn't there last night, so I was looking forward to a good night sleep and finally sleeping in this morning. But noooooo, that's NOT going to happen in this house.I woke to our Boston growling at the foot of the bed. And my husband saying, Did you hear that?. I said I heard Levi. And he said, No, before that. I said, no, I was sleeping. He said something had screamed outside. We got up to go investigate. Just as I started down the hall, I met our DIL, she was in tears. She said, did you guys hear that? I told her to sit down at the table, and we would be right there. We had a quick peek out the back door, then went back to check on her. As it turned out. Her little dog that stays outside had started barking.Along with one of our older Pits that only barks at Thunder, gunshots and fireworks. This had alerted Marty while we were still in the bed.Well our DIL had gone outside to quieten her little dog.Just as she bent over to touch her dog. What seemed to be, a kid screamed beside her.(Which I think would have scared the holy crap out of anyone!) This is the same scream that Marty had heard earlier. We sat at the table for a bit and talked. Then we all went back to bed. Marty and I couldn't go back to sleep. So we're up now.
On a brighter note, there wasn't any scratching last night.Next time, I will be a bit more specific in what I ask for...

Later today, we're going to take a family trip up to Stump House Tunnel, do a bit of hiking.Naturally, i will have the cam and recorder.Maybe we can get some fun stuff for ya.:)

A haunted School?

Well, we are finally going to check out the old school house that is right above us.My mom said this place was old when she was a little girl. So, we're going to check it out.It could possibly be tied to some of our activity.I will be posting pictures, and any EVP's we capture a bit later. (Wish us luck!

Exhausted

The scratching started up @ 1:30 this morning. It seems to be getting louder. I don't think I got but a couple hours of sleep last night. It's going to be a rough day.

Scratching

I was sound asleep last night. All curled up with my husband and female pit bull. When i heard a strange noise that woke me from a deep sleep.I lay there quietly and listened.There it was again,a scratching coming from inside the bed room wall. This time my Pit Amy heard it, as she raised her head and alerted to it. Before settling back down beside me. Her actions let me know that it wasn't a mouse. Amy would have been off the bed in a flash, pawing and whining at the wall.While tilting her head back and forth listening to the faint mouse sounds. But this scratching had been pretty loud. Naturally i told myself it was a mouse, and tried to go back to sleep. It was no easy task...

At the same time, my DIL was up in another part of the house. She said she had woke up terrified, but she didn't know why. She came into the dinning room to smoke.Then didn't want to go back to bed. She said that she was actually afraid to go back to her own bed room.
No one in my home should ever have to feel uncomfortable. I don't like that at all.

A bit quieter

Things seem to be quieter now than they have been in years.The only thing that has happened recently is my being touched as I was trying to drift off to sleep.Other than that. It has been blessedly quite. (Makes me wonder, if it's going to pick up again)

Now here's the kicker. :)
My mother lives right next door to us. She and I were talking a couple of days ago.She said she had come home from church one evening, and went to her bedroom to change. As she was changing, she heard strange music playing very softly.She started looking around to see if she could find it.As she got closer to her walk-in closet, it got a bit louder.She opened the door, and there on the floor was the source of the music. It was our grandsons baby swing. It has been in her closet for months, wrapped up in a plastic bag. There is no way it can come on by itself. Two separate switches have to be turned to make it play music.But there it sat. Playing music! She called for my dad to come in there and see it. But just as he got to her bedroom doorway, it stopped. So naturally, I wonder, if whatever was at our house, is now next door? Is that possible? I know there is no way in the world my mother would ever lie about anything. She is the belief that she is not risking her salvation by telling a lie. This had her kind of upset. Now when the Investigators come back in the fall, she wants them to come to her house too. And I can't say that I blame her.

Marty has been doing a lot of research on the land and the history of it. He has found quite a few interesting things. But I will get him to post some time soon, and tell you all about it. Guess that's it for now. And I'm not going to say that I'm sorry I didn't have more creepy stuff to tell about. I'm kinda happy I didn't! :)

Updating a few days

I know it's been a couple of days since I've posted.But that doesn't mean that things have quietened down.

The day before yesterday, my Boston Terrier was laying on the dining room chair asleep.I had just walked by and giggled at the loud snoring he was doing. I sat down at my computer to work on some drawings, when all of a sudden, he was thrown from the chair! He let out a startled yelp and ran for me. I scooped him up. And very plainly stated. "You DO NOT, EVER Hit one of my dogs!! About that time my son and daughter in law came in, only to hear a loud crash coming from their room. Upon checking it out, they discovered that one of their wedding champagne glasses had shattered for no reason at all. Coincidence? Or did my strong correction anger the forces that be?

For the past couple of nights, I have slept pretty well, (Finally) But rest assured, if I sleep well, someone else in the house is being targeted. And they were. My husband and daughter in Law both have had some strange experiences over the last two nights.All of this really makes me feel pretty helpless.And at times I get really tired of it. But what do you do? And in asking that, I'm open to suggestions......

Scratches

Last night seemed normal enough.We all watched TV, then turned in around eleven. Marty and I went to our room and continued to watch TV a bit longer.We finally went to sleep around midnight. I woke up around one thirty, I had heard a noise in my sleep that sounded like someone had sat down in Marty's desk chair. (It gives just that certain squeak that you become used to over time.) I was sure that was what I had heard. I lay there awake, listening to see if i heard anything else.That's when i heard a cigarette lighter strike, and actually saw the flash of light from it. But i had never heard anyone walk up the hall or into the dinning room.I continued listening to see if i heard anyone leave the room.I never heard anything and eventually fell asleep.I turned over this morning and looked at the clock. It was beginning to get light in the room. It was seven thirty. I snuggled back into my pillow, to try to go back to sleep when i felt the intense burning on my stomach and chest. I have felt this once before so i was pretty sure what this was. I went ahead and got out of bed. I gently raised my pajama top, to reveal three long red scratches running from my chest to my stomach.Sigh. Oh well. Not much can be done about it, but to endure the intense burning. I went to the kitchen to make coffee. I was up for sure now.

Something under the bed?

Well, i didn't go out to try to get any EVP's last night. Sorry guys, I turned in early.BUT, Night before last, I woke up and kicked the covers off. I soon fell right back to sleep. I don't know how long I was asleep when I woke up to what felt like a finger gently tracing my ankle. I quickly drew my legs up and hopped back under the covers.Well, last night I again woke up and kicked the covers off. I turned over, stretched out, re-adjusted my pillow and had every intention of drifting back off when suddenly something firmly gripped my ankle! I yanked my leg up, grabbed the covers and called my husbands name a couple of times to try to wake him. I was terrified.But he kept snoring. I lay there for what seemed like forever before I fell asleep again. But the rest of the night remained quite.Bottom line here. I DO NOT like being touched. Especially in the wee hours of the morning. That is just downright creepy.

The Land

 Since our reveal, we have started taking into consideration, that some of this may be tied to the land here. So last night we decided to arm ourselves with two video cameras and an audio recorder to see if we could pick up anything. Well naturally, everything decided to shut down on us. First, my audio shut off. Then after clicking a couple of still images, my camera shut off. Suddenly our second camera just outright died. So we walked back to the house. Upon entering our front patio, everything was working just fine again. (Of course!). We heard some strange noises about one am while outside. One was very strange laughter, coming from the woods. It actually sent a chill down my spine. But with my audio gone I wasn't able to capture it. ( I have every intention of trying again tonight.) But anyway, here are the two photos I captured last night. And I know what a lot of you skeptics out there will say (I would too if I hadn't been there myself.) It looks just like cigarette smoke in the second picture. BUT, none of us smoke while doing this, only because it is so easy to contaminate the evidence.So you can judge for yourself. These pictures were taken about 300 feet from our house.The first one is just a typical picture. (Nothing there) Then I immediately panned a bit to the right and clicked again.....

Audio from the reveal

This audio was taken outside our home.If you will listen closely, just as the dogs start to howl, there is a very strange yell. Sounds almost human to me.(Just after you hear what sounds like two claps) I would LOVE to get some feed back on this one. Tell us what you think you hear.

The Reveal

Our reveal was exciting, to say the least. It seems that we have activity on three levels here. We have residual, which is repeated playbacks of auditory, visual, olfactory, and other sensory phenomena that are attributed to a traumatic event, life-altering event, or a routine event of a person or place, like a  replay of past events. Completely harmless. Then we have elemental, can be irritating at times, but none the less, pretty benign. THEN, we have a demonic presence. Very irritating! But so far, harmless. These have the power to grow stronger. But with the help of the CPI team, we know what we're facing, and we know how to "try" to keep it from getting any stronger. I really want the team to come back later in the year just to see what they can find. Each team member had personal experiences that they can't explain. They said this had been a fascinating Investigation. And I like the fact that they have made themselves readily available to us, knowing what we are dealing with. It's going to take some time for our presence to dissipate. And with the help they have given us, we can do our part to see that it does just that.
I'm going to now add some pictures from the CPI Investigation.Please keep in mind that the first two were taken by an infrared camera. It was pitch black in the room.




I will get the audio uploaded later today. And a few images that we captured just after the reveal.

Reveal Reschedule

Well, we were supposed to have our reveal tonight, and find out what the Investigators found out.But, something came up, and they have had to reschedule.Marty and Chris took the day off today. And my brother was all set to come out. I just hope they can work it out, to do it sometime over this holiday weekend. It feels like we have been waiting forever.Maybe whatever is here, just doesn't want us to know what they have found? I have never in my life gone through anything so difficult. This thing has spanned a few months now. Lately, my Boston is starting to be terrorized in my home. I don't like that at all. The little dog will be following Marty or me through the house, and it's just like he gets slapped down.He jumps back up and runs to us with his ears laid back, the whole time looking over his shoulder.I don't like that. He's a very special little dog to me, and that bothers me greatly.
