These occurrences have taken place at my sister's house over the course of the past 3 years.
The house my sister and her family live in was built by her husband's grandfather. At some point, throughout the years, even in their adult lives, every one of his aunts and his uncle has lived in the house. His grandmother died in the house.
My sister is 4 years younger than I am. She isn't one to watch scary programs or things of that nature. Mostly because her husband works out of town a lot and he doesn't get home until well after dark.
The first attention grabber she had was about 3 years ago during one of these times when her husband was working in TN. She was at home with my niece, who was only 3 at the time. It was about 9pm and she heard sounds like someone walking across the floor of the attic. This scared her and she immediately got on the phone and called me. I told her that there was no way someone could be in the attic because it is so full of junk that you can barely pull the door down without stuff falling out of it. She was still terrified and I told her to pack up my niece and come on down to mom and dad's house. She arrived about 15 minutes later, still in tears. She stayed at mom and dad's house for the next 9 nights until her husband got back home.
About 2 1/2 years ago when she was pregnant with my twin nephews, she was in the kitchen fixing supper and out of the corner of her eye she saw what she thought was my niece run down the hall wearing a white cotton dress. She was about to get upset at Kaitlyn (my niece) for playing in her "good clothes" when she turned the corner, looked down the hallway and saw no one. She went to the front door and there was Kaitlyn outside playing in the yard wearing an old pair of denim shorts and a purple shirt.
She had mentioned these things to her husband and like some men he dismissed these occurrences as her "seeing" things or just her hormones being out of whack.
Last year she had taken my two nephews to the babysitter's house and went home to relax some while waiting for my niece's bus to arrive. She has a sectional sofa and the shortest end was what faced the TV. She had made herself some popcorn and was watching TV when she saw what looked like one of her son's heads slowly rise just enough so that about an inch was visible over the end of the sofa. Of course she freaked, she slowly peeked over the end of the sofa and nothing was there. She thought she was going crazy and sat back down to continue her program. This happened 2 more times and she finally went outside to wait for the bus.
This is the kicker: about 3 days ago her husband was in the kitchen making himself a sandwich. My two nephews were asleep on the couch, my sister was watching TV lying on the couch and my niece was at her other aunt's house. Her husband came into the living room and asked where the boys were. She told him to be quiet because they were both asleep and asked why he wanted to know. It is a clear shot view from the kitchen into their living room and he could see my sister sitting in there. He told her that while he was making his sandwich, he thought one of the boys was playing with the slide lock on the door that leads down into the basement. This lock has been on that door for years now and the part that bolts is very loose and makes a distinctive noise when you try to lock or unlock it. She told him that maybe he was "hearing" things or that maybe his hormones were out of whack. He didn't appreciate this in the least bit. She told him that these were the types of things that she had been dealing with for the last 3 years and that she was glad he had finally had something happen to him that couldn't be explained.
She has told me on several occasions that she thinks her house it haunted. When in the kitchen out of the corner of her eye she sees what looks like a man sitting on the end of her sofa. When she looks straight on, no one is there. She has never seen things while looking straight on except for the head thing.
Is there something in their house? Could it be his grandmother? My sister is getting to the point where she isn't feeling comfortable in her own house, she wants to move. I would love to hear some suggestions from you guys/girls as to things that we can do to help her feel more at ease.
