Invited to B-day Party for 4 Kids

Hi! We were invited to a birthday party for 4 siblings ranging from 13-8 years old. I only know 2 of the children (they were in my Sunday School class), and my daughter said the youngest is in her class as well.

Birthday Theme Ideas

Christmas Present Ideas for Girls 6 and 7 Years Old

This is pathetic but I can't really think of what to get my daughters for Christmas. They're a recent 7 and soon to be 6. They both love their American Girl dolls so I'll get them some accessories. And they both like arts and crafts projects but curious if I'm missing anything. They have plenty of clothes and don't play video games. What are you daughters asking for? Any good board games for this age? They want everything they see but I hate clutter. Thanks. (And we will also give presents to less fortunate people so I won't make...
