The new ride

On New Years's Eve, Joey and I decided to take the plunge and buy a new ride(new to us anyways...) We've heard you can get the best deals on the last day of the year and that was our goal: a great deal(and we got it!) The Expedition had over 100,000 miles on it..was acting funny..eight years old...and the battery was about dead(Okay, it was dead! We made it there fine but when the guy looked at it to figure out trade-in value, he had to jump start it! Hahahaha. But it was mostly because of the snow/cold and the fact we hadn't started it in awhile...thats what we said...:)We decided we needed something bigger and we opted for a Suburban. After hours at this stupid dealership that we will never go back to(Oh, I have stories...), we drove away with a beautiful silver suburban that Ella has named Steve. :) And we got a great price and a decent trade. I had a price in my head I wanted to pay for that car..and no car salesman was able to get me to pay more. Not a penny more. Not even the manager. Hahaha. Losers. ;) I figured if they wanted to sell it badly enough on New Years Eve, they wouldn't let us walk. And they didn't. As we were walking out, they called us back in and gave us what we wanted. Booyah. I love my new ride!! Its a 2011 and it has leather interior(a must for me with the kids and spills!) And we have so much more space. I have to give a special shout out to my Mom who was here visiting. She watched the kids that day for us to carshop..and for us to make the purchase. It took longer than expected and we got home so late! We couldn't have done it(and stayed sane) without my mom! I can't imagine being in that dealership with all five kids in tow...so thanks Mom! We love you!

Look at us...aren't we cute? 

I hope Steve is ready to see the world....
