They had to put a metal plate in his arm with five screws. (I believe, the surgeon wanted to have three above and three below the break, but there wasn't enough room between the break and the elbow to put more than two.) If I understand it correctly, the plate is permanent.
Even though the failed trick didn't impress any girls, maybe he'll be able to impress all the ladies in the future by setting off metal detectors with his bare hands!! That's my brother!

I regret to admit that I ended up sitting on the sidelines with Pam, as we watched the men join the kids in making fools of themselves. This was a decision that I did not regret in the least. First of all, it was hilarious to watch grown men racing children to beat them as the next slipper to slide down the soaked tarp. Brad's face was pure ecstasy, and Mitch looked like a walrus as he willed his body to go the farthest. Oh, and their little son, Ben, was way too cute!
Second of all, it was apparently very painful. Brad got tarp burns down his bare chest, and various scrapes, cuts, and bruises on multiple parts of his body. Not to mention, his muscles were so sore the next day that he literally had to use his arms to lift his legs up, one at a time, into his pants.
Obviously, we're too old for this stuff.

Both of these country stars just earned some mega points in my book. Taylor's awesome sense of humor was displayed Saturday night at Keith's Kansas City tour when she and her band appeared on stage with him dressed up as KISS and rocked out to his Kiss a Girl tune. He was caught completely off guard, and it's completely hilarious.

Brad and I have actually already received our formal invitation. As soon as I saw it in the mailbox, I felt bad for costing my future-sister-in-law $1.05 in postage. Why, oh why didn't I just bring it home with me that night?
Oh well. Real mail is always nice. Especially when it says "Mr. & Mrs. Bradley Mehaffey" in that stunning, handwritten script!

She was completely showered with love by some of us who love her most. Here's the whole gang (minus Beth and Baby Adley who had to leave early). Notice how we (accidentally) left a perfect space for Bobby Brown to join us!
The bride-to-be with her wonderful hostesses, Megan, Cristin and Gena.
With barely a month to go before the Big Day, she's anticipating a few more showers with different groups of friends and family. Oh the benefits of marrying your love. Besides, you know, marrying your love.

Evenings with the girls are always fun, especially when we're at the mall or watching a great chick flick together. Combine those two activities, and make the movie a free, sneak preview, and you've got a pretty great night on your hands! Thanks, Cristin, for making it happen!
