Passed interview but no green card in sight...

My wife and I had our AOS interview at the Denver office on August 2nd, and the officer said we were apprroved pending receipt of 2 affidavits of sworn statements from people that have known both of before and after marriage affirming our marriage is bona fide. The officer told us that once he received these documents, he only had to hit one key on the computer and the green card would be printed in Ohio and mailed to us in 1-2 weeks. We were both very happy that the interview went well and excited to finally reach the green card milestone.

We submitted two affidavits that were delivered on August 4th. It is now more than a month later and our case status still shows as "Interview Scheduled". We scheduled an infopass appointment for Aug 31, but the lady could not (would not?) provide any information. She just said to keep checking our mailbox. My wife's EAD expires in December, and the USCIS lady said she did not know if the green card would arrive before Dec, so we should file for an extension for the EAD. We are very frustrated at this point.

Up to this point, we haven't had any problems and the process (while lengthy and bureaucratic) has been predictible. Any ideas what we should do next?

We made an easy pass appointment, but the didn't provide any useful information. We then filed for a new combo card since we had a trip to Thailand planned and the original combo card would be expired, and we also made another infopass appointment. On the morning of our infopass appointment (Nov 8), the status on the green card changed to approved, and on Nov 18th we received the green card. We just returned from Thailand and clearing immigration at LAX was easy with the green card. On our previous trip, it took 5 HOURS for my wife to clear immigration at LAX with her AP card.
