Chris normally doesn’t like salt and vinegar anything, but he gobbled up his own chips and then finished off mine! They were that good.

She then gave the envelope to me so I could bake a cake that was pink or blue on the inside, and I brought the cake to her party on Saturday where they cut into and found out they were having……
