I invited my one sister here over a month ago to come for Christmas and she gave me the excuse that her vertigo was acting up and that she wouldn't be coming into town(she lives in Detroit Michigan and I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan) and then find out today that my other sister that lives in Grand Rapids also had invited her and that is where is at.
She was there for Thanksgiving Day also, and had told me that if she came in town for Christmas she would come to my house(and also told my boys that she would be here for Christmas) and then she pulls this. It pi$$es me off so much that my other sister always has to butt in but if I say anything then I am being childish and need to grow up according to them. She has even had the balls to say to me that she knew I would react this way and be pi$$ed about it(I think I have every right to be).
She called yesterday and said she was coming to my house today(which I didn't invite her today I have other company coming later this afternoon and have to prepare the food for them). So would you just stop asking her to your house or what? and how would you tell your 5 and 10 year old that they won't be seeing their aunt anymore? Just don't know what to do anymore husband says to just write them off and not invite them anymore.

Why didn't all of your talk to each other and make a decision on who's house all of you would go to for the holiday?
I would not stop inviting either sister. Just do not expect them. Tell your kids the truth. "I invited aunt____, but she might not come." As in you do not expect her to show up. Give them a certain time to be at your house. Then go about your day.
