    If it's meant as a polite reply to a nice invitation I'd definitely go for
    Tom and Anna will be happy to spend the weekend with her.
    or , if it's spoken English, even
    Tom and Anna are happy to spend the weekend with her.

    But I'd definitely not be happy with
    Tom and Anna are being happy to spend the weekend with her.

    hope this helps.
