Creepy Baby Monitor Warning
By Stephen Wagner, About.com Guide
My baby, our second child, was about 5 or 6 months old in the early summertime, maybe in late April or May. I remember it was quite warm out but not hot like it is in June. We lived in a duplex rental with three bedrooms and one bathroom. The master bedroom was at the end of the hall and this is where the baby was sleeping.
It was around 9:00 p.m. and my oldest daughter, 5 at the time, was asleep on the couch. My husband and I were playing an X-box game. We had a baby monitor to listen to the baby as she slept. The baby had been asleep for about an hour when the the monitor started picking up static. It was not constant static, but in and out a little, not bad enough to pay attention to.
I had gone to the bathroom, and when I came out into the hallway it was very cold. I said something about it to my husband who was in the living room, but he said he was hot. I checked on the baby and covered her up with a blanket, then went back to the living room. Sure enough, it was pretty warm in there.
A little while later, the baby monitor picked up static again, but this time it didn't go away; it stayed staticky for quite a while. I was reaching over to turn the volume down and as I looked at it, the lights all lit up (they normally do light up when noise is transmitted) and then it went silent.
My husband and I just stared at it for a moment, then a voice came through the monitor -- a low, husky voice that gave us both chills. It said, "Get her." We both ran down the hall and into the bedroom where the baby was. Just as we went into the room the baby's blanket literally flew off her like someone pulled it off. My husband grabbed the baby and we ran out of the room. Inside, the whole house was so cold we could see our breath. I got our oldest daughter and we ran out and got in the car and spent the night at my mom-in-law's house.
Strange Spooky Visions

This took place about six years ago, September, 2004, near London, Ontario, Canada. My two dogs and I were in the living room watching TV. I was on the couch and the dogs by my feet. All of a sudden, my dogs started barking.
They got up and stood at the edge of the carpet, barking while looking toward the kitchen. It spooked me because I was the only one in the house. I looked toward the kitchen; just at that time I saw what looked like black smoke. It quickly moved down stairs toward the basement. After that happened, my dogs were quiet. I sat on the couch shaking, not wanting to believe what I just saw.
Another incident happened two years before that in February, 2002. From the back laundry room, there is a very big window. My uncle's house can clearly be seen. He has a patio window that faces my house.
I was doing laundry and just happened to look outside toward my uncle's house. I saw what looked like a little girl standing in front of the patio window. I thought my cousin from The States was visiting. The next day, I walked over to my uncle's to ask him if my cousin was visiting.
I told him I saw a little girl wearing a black dress with white sleeves. He looked at me strangely and said, "Your cousin Michelle was not here." I then asked who was here then wearing those clothes. He said, "There was no one here yesterday." I became spooked again!
see ya friday!
smell ya later~!
