Carissa and Isaac

My beautiful sister, Carissa, sent me this picture today and I just had to share it. In case you didn't konw, this picture is of Carissa and my new nephew Isaac. Isn't it such a cute picture? Really though, they are a very good looking family! You can read and see more of the Mastry Family on their blog!

story of a shower (part deux)

So... our shower has become more of a major project than we expected it to (of course, right?!) Here are some pictures of what we've been up to this weekend...

door off-- check!

Heather being a good helper! (btw-I know I look like a goober in this outfit...)

Heather hurt her finger-- OF COURSE! :( (Ok, so it doesn't look that bad in this picture but it HURTS really bad.)

4 Ibuprofen and she was back in the game!

Matt diggin' in

the hole as of yesterday...

and the hole today.

Matt moved the electrical lines around so they won't be in the way and he took some of the old nasty wood out too. He's gonna try and finish the whole thing up tomorrow, as he has the day "off!"

story of a shower

So, our shower needs to be fixed. This means we have our first major home repair on our hands. Well, at least it's “major” to me. Matt would just call it "a day at the office."

Here's the story:
As I was showering Tuesday morning I pulled up our shower mat and noticed a small hole starting to develop next to our drain. The hole was letting water from our daily showers go down into the floor instead of down the drain. Honestly, the hole comes as NO surprise because our shower is SUPER ghetto. However, we were willing to live with the nastiness of our shower until we were ready to remodel that part of the house. But because of the hole it looks like we'll be starting on the shower a little sooner than we expected... like this weekend! Tonight I decided that I'd help with the demolition process and below are the pictures of what developed during the demo!

when we bought the house (we put a shower mat down before we use it though)

going at it with the hammer

here's what it looked like after I was done with it...

Heather: "Demo is fun! & Yay! A new shower is on the way!"
Matt: "ugh... there goes my Saturday..."
