Addison: "Is drinking hot chocolate an activity?"
Nyla: "I'm going to build a snowman. I'm going to build a lot of snowmen actually. I hope it snows soon!"If your mom and dad were in a backflip competition, who would win and why?
Addison: "I've never seen my mom do a backflip. I've seen dad do a backflip on his bike though!"
Nyla: "Dad. Mom probably doesn't know how to do a backflip. She would get hurt. Dad does backflips on his bike!"If you had any superpower, what would it be and why?
Addison: "Hmm.. music power. Like Musa on the Winx Club. She has the power to write and make music. I'd like to do that because I like singing and dancing and it would be awesome to write my own songs!"
Nyla: "Ice power! Not like Elsa exactly. But I could turn anything into a snowman! I could make snow whenever I wanted and always be able to snowboard!"Is there anything about you or the Wessel family that you think people should know?
Addison: "We are all kind. And we are always doing crazy stuff, haha!"
Nyla: "I should tell grownups that I lie sometimes. But I am good at sharing!"If you could change one rule your family has, what would it be?
Addison: “I’d jump on the couch. It’s so big and I’d jump on every square! It would make my tricks a lot easier!”
Nyla: “I wish I could use my mom’s yarn without asking her. We made a mess out of it some times and now we have to ask before we use it. I’d make something out of it like a bed or a house.”If you grow to be famous, what do you want to be famous for?
Addison: “Oh! I want to be a rockstar, like Taylor Swift! I want to go out and sing on stage in front of a bunch of people that I don’t know. I would love to have a manager to give me fun wig options! I’d also love to be in a tour bus! That would be great!”
Nyla: “I want to sing on stage! I’d get to say ‘hi’ to everybody who comes to watch. I’d say, ‘Hi everybody, my name is Katy Perry and I’m going to sing my song called Fall Out Boy!”What is your favorite place in the world?
Addison: “I like New York a lot. I like that they have a Disney store! We stayed in a hotel when we were there and it was fun to look out at the streets that were really busy. The big buildings were cool, but I really just like staying in a hotel!”
Nyla: “The special place where we play beside Jenna’s house! I love to play with my friends if they are there. It has the big bushes with the hole in the middle that we can pretend like we are falling and say, ‘Ahhhhhh, I’m falling!’”If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?
Addison: “I’d turn on the bouncy house and freak out my mom! And when she’d go and turn it off, I’d turn it back on. She’d be like, ‘What is going on?!’”
Nyla: “I’d pour a potion on me so that I wouldn’t be invisible anymore! I wouldn’t want to be invisible at all!”
