Ok so my DHs family is HORRIBLE to us. They never call (we just found out his father was in the hospital and they never called to tell us), they never drop by to see us, and when it comes to holidays or bdays they contact me 1-2 days before the event to let me know whats going on. Even if I call them frequently leading up to that day.
I can't stand them treating me like I should drop EVERYTHINg to go to their house when they can't even give mt the time of DAY!!!!!!!!!
My family lives near us to so holidays are shared between families, and it only makes it harder when they do this to us. Finally my DH said screw em.. and we are celebrating thannksgiving with my family ONLY! And the funny thing is.. they don't ever do this to the rest of the family (her other 3 kids) just us!
What whoudl you do and how would you react?

Yes, I would be upset too. I would try to find out why this is happening but if you can't, I would go with your husband on the screw them part because if your family (meaning you, DH and your kids) have done nothing to deserve this kind of treatment (which it sounds like you haven't), then it's pretty much their problem. Spend the holidays with your family where you know you're all welcome and enjoy them.
