they invite themselves
The only way that they would know that is if you DIL tells them to come. At times you have to be blunt and say invitation is only for your son; wife and grandchild only. Don't want to feed a crowd.

Just tell your daughter-in-law that as the hostess you will decide the guest list and you have no intention of feeding her entourage. Invite her directly, don't send it through your son (the whimp is probably the problem) Jenny I was wonder if the 3 of you wanted to come for dinner Sunday. There really is no way of misundertanding the words "the three of you." Then if she feels she can't breath without the gang all there. Just say sorry, I had something smaller in mind maybe next time. Let her host everything for a while.
