No, that's not it. More likely Andy invited us to a party that he (Andy) and someone else (his wife, a roommate, whatever) were having.

The usage is not as you thought, but 'they', 'them', and 'their' can be used in a singular sense. This is mostly done only when the antecedent is indefinite (someone, no one, ...).

Someone left their sweater here. OK.
Robert left their sweater here. NO if Robert and their are intended to be coreferential.
Robert left his sweater here. OK.
