Father-in-law and his wife treats my daughter differently

FIL and his wife treats my daughter differently than his other grandchildren. It had started when we had our daughter baptized and he and his wife RSVPed and then only came to the church ceremony and didn't come to our house for the small celebration. He went golfing instead. Now we are getting ready to have my first birthday party and they said that they are going to try and go but they didn't know. Then the wife in the background said that they will bring their own food. (we are having her party in a restaurant because we don't have the space at home) My husband doesn't care because he does not like his wife. I don't think the wife likes us because she unfriended us on Facebook back in February. My FIL and his wife goes to all the other grand-kids events and stays the entire time. They go to their house and visits the kids. He's only seen our daughter once since Christmas. I just feel like they are doing this on purpose. I care that are doing this to my daughter. I don't know how to confront them about it.

You can talk to them, but you can't make them change if they don't want to. You should try to include them, knowing that they may flake out. Don't get all upset over it. If they are such jerks, you don't want them there anyway. If you don't make a big deal of it, your daughter probably won't be upset about it either. You just focus on her, and let the in-laws take care of themselves.
