Scariest Night of My Life!

I'll just start right in because this is a LONG story. So last night the young women were having a girls night, and pampering some us women in the ward. So nice huh?! Went to that and saw Lance at the church with his Young Men as I was leaving to go home. (which I hate going home without lance at night.) Anywho, so as I pulled onto our street I noticed that the motion light was on....side note: the motion light doesn't go on until you are RIGHT in front of it. K- back to the story. So I kinda got way freaked out and called Lance and made him stay on the phone with me until I got in and settled. So I got all settled and turned on all the main lights in the house. Brody was so tired, so I started to make him a bottle and then...I heard a shuffle upstairs and then a ring from a phone that quickly turned off after the 3rd ring. (I'm starting to scare myself all over again.) I froze. K- another side note...all of us scare ourselves, me probably a little more than others...but come on a ring tone ok. So I froze there looking down stairs looking at Brody. -How do I get out. There is only three choices. The only thought that kept coming to my head was "Get Out Now!" I had to be brave...As much as I didn't want to be. So I ran down stairs, grabbed B. and ran out the garage, slamming it closed behind me. I ran to Luci's house and rang her door bell and banged her door. I told her everything as I was bawling and shaking. She ran upstairs and grabbed her gun. ahah. I love her. I called Lance and he had sent his cousin over. So Luci and Troy went in. They were gone forever! Lance had gotten there too. And called me about 15min. later. And they told me what had happened. When they had gotten in the family rm. they heard the ring tone too. Luci said she got SO scared. Troy had the gun. When they got up to the kitchen, Troy heard it again...but he heard it really close to the kitchen, not upstairs. Then they discovered the culprit. The baby monitor...it was out of batteries. Woops, probably should have replaced that. (oh and the shuffle, if you've ever been in my house...it makes SO many creaks...even worse it literally howls when the wind blows.) Normally I would have felt so dumb. But I don't about this one. Everyone was just as scared. But I live in one of the best neighborhoods in SV. Thank you Luci and Troy! And my sweet hubby for not making fun of me.





By the time they looked through the entire house, it was easily 9:30pm and Brody was SO beyond tired. He fell right asleep on the floor!
Well I got my scare for Halloween. No need for a haunted house!
