The Holidays 2021


The Holidays 2021
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for January 9, 2022

We had a very pleasant Christmas and New Year holiday season this year.  We spent Christmas down in Iowa visiting with Miss Sheri's mom, Leona.  It's so nice that we're able to go visit with her again.

Christmas dinner with Grandma Leona and Uncle Jerry's family was excellent as usual.  Luke missed the memo that our family would be wearing red shirts this year.

We call this photo "Hawk Flying Near Farm."  
It just seems like an appropriate title.

Blue told us he would be happy to join us for opening presents, but said there's no way he's going to pose for any pictures.  1 out of 2 isn't bad I guess.

Luke and Avery are getting to the point where the only clothes they will wear have to pay some sort of homage to Minnesota Sports.  We're hoping that some day Minnesota sports will repay us for their loyalty.

Avery and I went to the Vikings game the day after Christmas.  Matthew Stafford and the Lions....I mean the Rams were in town and all the Vikings had to do was win this game and they would be in the driver's seat for making it to the playoffs.

It just wasn't meant to be this year.  The Vikings played tough, but in the end they lost the game 30-23.  I was confident they'd have much better luck the following week in Green Bay to save their playoff hopes.

The Bachelorette, Michelle Young, made an appearance at the game. It ended up being a set-up for one of the cheerleader's boyfriends to propose to her.  It was pretty sweet.  If I were into that sort of thing.

Since we didn't get to spend Christmas with Grandma Linda, we took her out to dinner a couple nights later.  Poor thing can never stay awake more than a couple minutes at a time, but we still love being with her all the same.

As we have for the past quite a few years minus a Covid time-out last year, we spent new year's with our friends, Karl & Tina Zitzewitz.  They had fun glow lights and everything!

Due to Covid, they had a lighter turn-out than expected, but those of who made it partied our socks off until at least 12:15 or so.  Then it was nighty night time.

  Game night with the Korkowski Clan is always fun.  Even if it does have a tendency to get a little violent from time to time. 

Krazy Kory and Harli came to town for a visit so we hit up the Mall of America for a night of adventure.  That is if you call dinner at a restaurant and a little bit of shopping adventurous.

Luke had his 6 month check-up at the Mayo Clinic.  We found out he's going to have to come in for another test in February, but all in all the visit was a positive one which always makes us thankful!  

We hope 2022 is off to a great start for all of you as well!
