Tying loose ends...

So I think I've finally for all my Christmas presents taken care of. I had thought I finished Xmas shopping on the 1st, but noticed a week or so ago that some of my things hadn't arrived and we hadn't been billed for them. When I called to check, I found out that a Bowflex I had ordered from the base exchange for Mike was out of stalk and I have no idea when they're gunna ship that out. I bought him a 4'x6' Cleveland Brown's rug for the garage that for WHATEVER reason they just never shipped out. I ordered it on the 1st and was told it would be shipped within 2-3 days and when I called on the 14th to complain I was told that the 3rd party company was planing on sending it out on the 16th... Well that does us NO good since we left town on the 15th and won't be back till the 3rd. So I called and told them they needed to hold the shipment till the 30th or so because we don't live in the best area and that will get stolen... Heh, well I was told "Oh ok, that't won't be a problem" ...Well surprise surprise, guess what's being delivered today! I just hope that company plans on replacing the item when it gets stole after sitting there for two and a half weeks.

THEN I had ordered a bunch of perfume and cologne for my family and had planned on having it shipped strait to my parents house in Cali. Well I called a week and a half ago to complain that it hadn't been shipped yet and was told by Perfume Worldwide that you can not order something and have it shipped to a different address than your billing address. Well I thought that was just plane weird. So I tried explaining that we are going to my parents for Xmas and their gifts for them and I need them shipped there. The lady kept telling me that there was noting she could do for me and finally ended up canceling my order and just hanging up on me. So I went and changed my address on my credit card to my parents address and re-placed my order. I guess they emailed me on Friday saying I put the wrong info again, UGH!!! I emailed and called them over and over and didn't get a hold of anyone till today. FINALLY when I got a hold of someone, she told me that supposedly my credit card STILL had my Yuma address on it BUT that was not a problem, she pushed the paperwork through and I should be receiving all my gifts next Monday (Now why couldn't the lady I talked to last week have done that?)... Sooo I FINALLY think all the loose ends have been tied... Everything that needs to get to my parents house SHOULD get to my parents house on time ((Knock on wood!))

Santa came early this year.

Since we'll be on vacation from December 14th through January 2nd, we decided to exchange gifts early this year rather then haul a bunch of unnecessary things from here to Cleveland then to Cali and then back.

We bought Makayla a reall pots, pans, utensils, an apron, an aqua doodle and a play dirt devil vacuum. My mom got her a pink toaster, coffee maky cute wooden kitchen, play food,er and mixer; and my grandparents got her a tricycle that I've still yet to figure out how to put together :-(

I got Mike a home gym, a really big Cleveland Browns rug, a tool box, power drill, measuring tape and a bunch of hot sauce and my grandparents sent him a REALLY nice her electric shaver.
Mike got me a BUNCH of stuff. Before you read the list you gotta know that i'm working on makin my kitchin ALL pink. I've already got a pink coffee maker and toaster and a lot of small pink odds and inns. Well Mike got me a couple pink serving platters, a set of tall drinking glasses with a pink tint to them and short tumblers. He got me Cuisinart's compleat pink utensils set, a pink collander, pink tea pot, tea kettle, some pink stalk pots, pink measuring spoons and cups, a really nice set of BIG pink coffee cups and a couple of pink and brown oven mitts. My grandpa got me a coffee grinder and the biggest bag of Starbucks coffee that I've ever seen. and my grandma got us the prettiest sounding wind chime I've ever heard. It's like huge and has a really deep sound... I'm excited to put it up when we return home.

Our New Car!!!

We are now the proud owners of a black 2008 fully loaded Nissan Altima 2.5SL :-D

The sticker price was $32,000 (MSRP $29,145) so with the $900 tax & title, that would make it an almost $34,000 car!!! And after much nagoating and actually walking away, the guy chaced Mike into the parking lot and decided to go down to $26,500 (we were aimin for 26k) but I guess i'm happy with $7,500 off.

The car is sooooo cute tho...

It's got a Navigation System with a 6.5" touch-screen monitor, voice recognition and Steering wheel-mounted navigation menu controls. Colored RearView Monitor and a Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System (your phone calls come through the car speakers). XM Satellite Radio, MP3/WMA player, Digital Bose audio system with AM/FM/in-dash 6-CD changer and 9 speakers. Charcoal leather heated seatsm a moon roof and rear passenger air conditioning vents (I know Makayla was appreaciate that).
