We finished with our Holiday Social, a new tradition that we are absolutely hoping to continue every year, to include the Dad Jokes! There were some zingers, and lots of laughs, so I had to add a final one!!

Dad: “What time did the man go to the dentist?”

Me: “Um, I don’t know…what time did the…”

Dad: “TOOTH HURT-Y!!!!”
