I'm a late nighter, and so is DS. Since I work from home and it works well to fit into our schedule, our 13 month old goes to bed at 10pm and wakes up around 9am!
He takes a 2 hour nap then around 1:30pm.

Bedtime is 7:00-7:30 at the latest, and our 26 mos old ds often wakes @ 5:00 am, recently he had a few days when he woke at 4:30, but 6:00 would be on the late side for him. Bummer for mama & dada!
Sounds like your kids get plenty of sleep and 8:30 is not early! What planet is your MIL from? ;)
ETA: naptime is after lunch and is an hour and a half usually, sometimes longer, sometimes shorter.

My 9 yo goes to bed at 8 and wakes up between 6-7 every day, including weekends
My 14 mo old goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes up usually between 6:30-7:15 every day
i know a lot of people who keep their kids up later, and have them sleep in later. We're more of a farmer schedule around here.
sleeping in until 8 is late! don't worry about it! i think maybe mil just wants to sleep in longer when they stay over?! :)
My DS is 26 months and most nights hits the hay around 9-10pm. We also co-sleep and nurse as well. He wakes a couple times in the night to nurse and up around 7-8am. Takes about a 1.5-2 hour nap mid afternoon.
I totally relate to hearing "he should sleep 10-12 hrs". For a long time I thought I was doing something wrong. Took a deep breath and can see my kiddo is well rested and happy.
DD1- 3.25 years, goes to bed at 8 or 8:30 (most nights) and is up around 7:30. She has also given up naps....
DD2 (13 months) goes to bed at 8ish and is up at 8 or 8:15. She is still napping a few hours a day.
Everyone's kids I know wake up way earlier than 8.

Totally sounds like something a MIL would say! I think that sleep schedule sounds awesome for all of your kids! A 6 year old getting 13-14 hours of sleep is a.maz.ing.
My DD is 13 months and goes to bed around 7 (sometimes 6:30) and is up WITHOUT FAIL between 6:30 and 7 am... No matter what.
She naps for about 2 hours at noon, and is certainly ready for bed at 7! (Now I just wish she'd STTN one of these days!!!)
expecting 14 hrs of sleeps (and MORE!) sounds crazy too me, my 2 year old does not sleep that much in 24hrs.
He goes to bed between 8.30-9.30 wakes up between 6.30-7.30 and naps (not always) 30-60min once during the day.

My 2 year old goes to bed between 8 and 9pm, but sometimes (like last night) he stays up talking to himself or playing quietly until 10pm (an hour after I put him in bed). Typically, he wakes up between 7 and 8:30am. On most days, he'll also sleep 2-3hours in the afternoon.
My 3 year old runs almost exactly this same schedule, except that some days her "nap" is 1.5 hours of quiet time in her room. Other days it is 3 hours of hard sleep.
She goes down anywhere from 8-9:30 during the week and wakes up about the same time respectively. On the weekends if we are visiting someone then she is too excited to go down early and it seems like she'll get up the same time in the morning but go down earlier for a nap that next day. If she stays with my mom, however, I guess it isn't unusual for her to stay up till midnight. I don't like it but my mom swears she can't stand for her to cry. What are you gonna do... But no, I don't think your kids wake up too early.
My 3 year old goes to be between 8:30-9 and wakes up at 6:20 on week days and 7-7:30 on weekends.
He also naps from Noon to 2 every single day.

My DS (almost 5 )has finally gotten into a really easy and regular sleep pattern, now that he's given up naps for good in the last year. He's sleeping around 8 and awake between 6:30 and 7.
My 15 month old DD used to be asleep by 6:30pm and I loved that! Lately it's been getting later (between 7 and 7:30) and she's awake for the day around 7. She takes one nap around 11 for about an hour and a half. Of course, she wakes up a least half a dozen times a night but there's starting to be some longer stretches so I'm not complaining too much.
