PAY IT FORWARD

I believe in this motto.  It's a good one to stand by.  I'm doing just that tomorrow night when it's time for our family movie bonding time.  You see...a long, long time ago my older sister Jenny rented a movie called "The Watcher in the Woods" for our family to see when I was about 9 years old.  I wanted to be JUST like my sisters when I grew up.  (both of them)  This particular sister never pre-warned us about this movie, just popped it in and there we sat.  
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THIS MOVIE? It's put out by Disney.  Even at the young age of 9 I knew that Disney was pretty safe.  Sure they have some scary moments in each of their movies, but for the most part...very family friendly, right?  This movie was C.R.E.E.P.Y to the 'nth' degree. (whatever that means)  I don't think I've ever been the same.  I blame Jenny.  A couple of months ago when I was with her I suggested that we rent this same movie so that we can now torture our OWN girls.  Unfortunately we couldn't find it with such short notice.  Last week I remembered that I wanted to buy this movie so I looked it up online and BOUGHT it.  It came today.  I told my family we were watching it.  My big, tough husband almost had a panic attack when he saw the cover.  You see...he had a similar experience as mine.  It made us laugh.  He claims that this movie puts the "E" in CREEPY.  Tomorrow night we will watch it.  I will have PAYED IT FORWARD.  
And I will have officially grown up to be JUST like my sister.

Ok, I just went to Netflilx and they have a trailer for the movie and it gave me the CREEPS too.
Todd just went to make sure all the doors were locked.
