I would recommend using the Nikon 50mm/1.8 since you will be confined to indoor's shooting only and with F1.8, your flash will have a better coverage.

Use the 18-55. The wide-angle will help with the group shots. The flash will help with ur exposure.

personally, i find flashes very irritating to the subject.
just use the 18-55 for group pics, etc.
use the 50 1.8 for kids and other stuff.
do as u see fit.
no model answer.
