Christmas Tea Count Down

This is adapted from my usual Tea Time Countdown, which is in the October archives. I don't remember how to link to one of my own posts! This is supposed to take place on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. As of this posting, I have 1 person who is definitely coming (me), 3 that definitely NOT coming, and 4 maybes.
I'm not sure how to plan for this. I've thought about cancelling, but one of the maybes really wants to come, she just hasn't heard back from her babysitter. She said it would be such a wonderful break for her. It's worth it to me to do it just for her. However, I don't have a clue as to how much food to make! Good thing we have a big freezer. At this point, I am planning to do everything like they are all coming. Man, this is frustrating.
