I just bought my first games, can I pay extra for my games to be shipped instantly to my home?

I recently went in search for something beyond Life for our family game night and found Carcassonne, what a difference a continent makes. I was able to order some games as a late Father's day present and ordered from Thought Hammer. (before I discovered Time Well Spent, sorry Dave) Since my games are never going to arrive, I guess I'll just put them in a GeekList, close my eyes, and pretend that I'm playing them. My family gaming group consists of my wife, 5 1/2 yo son, 7 yo daughter, 13 yo stepson, and occasionally 21 yo stepdaughter. We typically play after the kids go to bed also. For the games listed below I would like to hear of your favorite variants that generally make the games play better.

I fell in love with Carcassonne the moment I took it out of the box. [Can I buy meeples anywhere?] We bought the Inns & Cathedrals and the Count expansions right away. I will own every expansion, oh yes...I will.

30 Helens agree....Ticket to Ride looks like fun. Probably play this one first when they arrive.

Looks like a fun game to play. What else am I going to do with my pirate hat and parrot?

I forget who first recommended the game to me, but since ordering it, I've gotten a couple more recs for it. [Besides, I'm addicted to small colorful wooden pieces.]

Looking for a two player game to play with my wife. It came down to either this, Lost Cities, or LOTR: Confrontation. From the reviews, I don't think I could have gone wrong with any of the three.

My wife, son and I have been playing Warcraft for the last several years. My wife has played every expansion to death. I am hoping that this will turn out alright, and I am also hoping that maybe after my wife has played a couple hex games, that she'll be more open to getting Settlers!
