Favorite IL: I don't think I have one. Wait, does a dog count?
Least Favorite IL: Pretty much all of them but one SIL probably takes the cake.
Best thing: Gave us money to help out when my husband lost his job 2 years ago.
Worst thing: You name it
Best gift: They actually give really nice gifts. They ask for lists and get stuff off your list. Or just give money.
Worst gift: from BIL and SIL-shirts, one in each size...just to cover all the bases...oh and a chocolate melting pot, like a fondue pot but for chocolate....seriously, this was weird for me.


I wish I had more nice/good/positive things to say about my in laws.

Favorite IL: DH's grandparents
Least Favorite IL: MIL/SIL

Best thing the ILs have done for you: Gave us money interest free to purchase some land here until we can sell our old house
Worst thing the ILs have done to you: MIL ruined Christmas a year ago by having one of her dramatic medical episodes (they didn't find anything wrong) so they didn't arrive to DH's grandparents until so late on Christmas that DS was already in bed. He didn't even get to eat Christmas dinner with us because DH's grandma insisted on waiting. And the only presents he opened were from us.

Best gift you received from your ILs: Digital camera
Worst gift you received form your ILs: ugly jewelry and flowery scented candles which I hate flowery scents

Best thing the ILs have done for you: I do know that they had done some very nice things however, they are normally negated when it comes time for them wanting something.

Favorite IL: Extended inlaws, aunts and uncles
Least Favorite IL: MIL/SIL

Best thing the ILs have done for you: They created my DH...that's about it.
Worst thing the ILs have done to you:Threatening that the entire family wouldn't come to our wedding and demanding the money back they gave us for the wedding if a certain person was invited.

Best gift you received from your ILs:Money to use towards our wedding
Worst gift you received form your ILs:Too many to count! They always buy things they think we need, without asking, and we usually already have the item. Or buying things they think are funny that we either donate to charity or pitch.

Anything else you want to share: Ugh...things can only get worse when the baby gets here!
