well, now I know why the neighbors kept sending the kids home, saying they were busy or were about to go out. I had a feeling they just didn't want them over there.
They were finally allowed to play over there and were sent home only 20 minutes later. From what I piece together from the kids story was that DD (8) kept asking for drinks & snacks and DS (12) kept whinning and complaining and has a mini fit when it began to rain and was told to go home. (he has Asperger's so that explains some of it, but still....)
Although, could it be my fault? They ask me for drinks & snacks all day long and I usually give it too them. Maybe It got to be a habit so I should end that and put them on a schedule? If they're not begging me, maybe they won't do it to others? I don't know.
Not sure what to do now. Dh told them they couldn't go back there again, but I don't think he needed to bother, I don't think they'll be invited back. It's a real shame too cause they're out of friends. It really sucks.
No one says anything to me either so I never get the chance to talk to them. They just stop letting them come over. Although, if the kids are putting them off they probably think that's were it is coming from so they don't bother with me.
I'm working with them all the time. I just don't get why they just can't behave. There childhood is gonna suck and there's nothing I can do.

The kids just need to learn that you don't act the same in someone else's house as they do in their own. I guess I would say they need to "roll with the punches" a little better. Maybe call the neighbors and see if you can figure out what went wrong, or try inviting the neighbors to your house.
