Imprinted Haunting

I was telling a family member what happened to me and a friend of mine when we lived together. She told me it's what you'd call an "imprinted haunting". I figured I'd explain what happened, and let you guys decide if you've ever had this happen to you, and if so what you'd call it. If you haven't had it happen to you (or what I mean is, something similar) then what would you call it? A friend and I were living together in a house that we rented from her family. We were sitting in the living room one night when all of a sudden I looked in the mirror in the kitchen. I saw two figures, a boy and a girl, both wearing different era clothing. It could have been from the great depression or before, or it could have been indian. I think it was the latter, but I had only gotten a glance. That wasn't really the "imprinted haunting". The imprinted haunting happend in the same house around winter time, a few months later. I remember I was in my room when I heard it and it was the sound of someone running and then suddenly stopping. Then later I heard it again, sounding like it was coming from almost midways in the kitchen to right before the bathroom next to my room. It happened for about three months if I remember correctly every night, and then just stopped. Has anyone ever had something like this happen to them?

I've had this happen to me in several different places. The one I remember the best was at my grandmother's house where I grew up. Almost every morning around 5:30 give or take a few minutes, I would hear a what sounded like someone walking down the stairs, it even happened when I was home alone, and the cat was in the room with me. It didn't happen every morning, but most mornings it did.

That doesn't sound very strange at all considering that at that early hour in the morning it'd be conceivable that the lady of the house would go down to prepare breakfast for the family. I am wondering if on the days it didn't happen, was it the weekend?

It's been years since I lived there, and I honestly don't remember.

Does the family still own the house?

No, but I"ve heard enough stories from people I like and respect to wonder if there isn't something out there...

With so much history in this world, we'd be crazy not to think that something is out there.

I guess my most recent experience was the lip prints all over the mirrors and windows and doors of my house. Nothing super noticeable but sometimes when the light would shine in a certain way, I would see them. I started a discussion about them and a couple people thought it might be my daughter. I thought..hmm...maybe..but the locations of them sometimes were place she couldn't have reached or would have even been. One of them was the top of my livingroom window. It's one of those big ones that take up almost the whole wall. I don't know if I would call your haunting imprinted or not. I am not sure that these things really fall in to categories sometimes.
