“Someone end this nonsense! When I grow up, I want to be an artist that gets paid money. In this photo, Auntie TT was taking photos of me making funny faces. I look really good in this photo. I was wearing a red and white apron from Grandpa-Cilla (Grandma.)* We were making nutella cupcakes. This photo is special because it was daddy’s birthday and we wanted to surprise him. One of my favorite things is to eat some of the batter after making it. These cupcakes were pretty messy. You have to be careful not to add too much of things. Oh my gosh, I love snacks and I love Nutella. I almost ate the whole fridge!”   – Scarlett
