She has stated that she will be hosting and that will be that. No way will she go to the restaurant. Poor me, I always have to be the one to host... That seemed to be the underlined sentiment behind her words. My thinking is this. If you are the one who is set on always doing things a certain way, then you need to be prepared to always do the work. I'm not inclined on spending Xmas with half of those people anyway so why should I put the effort? Also, we did offer a solution. One we thought was quite generous at the very least.
