The good news is everyone came yesterday and we had a nice visit. The bad news is we put out all kinds of food that no one ate, so now we've got tons of snickysnack stuff left over, crackers and cheese and summer sausage. I did send everyone away with tins of homemade cookies.
I bought a new baking tray as part of my Christmas present this year and used it for my cookies. So oddly, the new recipe I tried turned out really well, but the chocolate chips I've made a hundred times did not because they baked weirdly on this new tray. So that sucked. I had enough good ones made on my old tray to give away, and we kept the not-so-pretty ones.
We also invited our realtor, since he happened to send us a Thanksgiving greeting/email, and he hadn't seen the place since we moved in. Not ten minutes after all the neighbors left, he arrived, which turned out to be perfect because we could have an actual conversation with him instead of "where are you from/what do you do" type stuff.
He brought his new baby, and she was SUPERCUTE. What's with all the supercute babies lately? I still don't want one, but they're fun to look at.
He said his wife is having a cookie swap this weekend if we'd like to come, so maybe we'll do that. Now that I know my new tray bakes weird, I can plan better.
