I'm not sure if I should be excited or annoyed.

Do you think your brother and SIL would want to go to your ILs house on Christmas Day? Maybe they would rather meet up with friends they haven't seen in a while?

We grew up by Detroit so they don't know anyone here, so I don't get why they want to come here. DH said he would not invite them to his parents but he wouldn't say they couldn't come either and MIL is OK with it but she wouldn't say no to anyone... grrrr.... I'm not even sure they are going to be here Christmas day or if it is just going to be sometime that weekend. SIL is Russian Orthodox and I think they celebrate Christmas a different day otherwise I'd say they would be at her parents that day. Ugh... Christmas is a special day for MY family and I don't mind my parents sharing it I do not want to worry about Nathan misbehaving around my brother or them making rude comments or all the stress comes with them being around. But they are family and I can't say no either... blah.
