Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas from us..

2008 has been a busy year for us.. Let's see..

--Graham and Sherri went to Disneyland for Graham's first time in March. No plans to return as of yet.. On the way there, they missed our flight down to Orange County.
--Graham got a promotion at his job at Contech in April. He became a manager and received a 50 cent raise. Woohoo.
--Sherri successfully defended and published her master's thesis in May at Oregon Health & Science University. She didn't officially graduate until the end of June. She also finished her dietetic internship in June.
--Graham & Sherri had a summer full of vacations and interesting experiences. They went to Idaho for the Camp family reunion, where Graham lost his wedding ring tubing on the river. They also served as a "ma and pa" on a Mormon pioneer trek for the Portland Stake. They were the coolest "parents", and ended up having a good time even though Sherri sustained several minor injuries along the way.
--Graham & Sherri went on their honeymoon to Kauai in July and only had a few minor mishaps on their vacation.
--Sherri had her first job interview at a hospital in the Seattle area, and got a job as a clinical dietitian. She officially started there in August and is currently loving her job.
--Graham started school full-time at Olympic College in Brem Brem, and plans on going into mechanical engineering. He also got a job as a job coach for handicaped people at the hospital. He plans on getting into the coordinated program with the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard to become an engineer there and they in turn pay back student loans. So.. they may end up in Brem Brem for a while!

For the cheese factor, here you go..

We're sending a greeting from both of us,
From G & S.. the names you trust.

We took a picture of us both to share,
We even dressed nice and styled our hair.

We only have one stocking by the fireside,
But we have Christmas lights to keep the room bright.

We love you all and miss those not near,
So we wish you all a Merry Christmas this year!

P.S. Doesn't Graham look like Edward from Twilight in this picture? I apologize for the nasty picture and sweats, but we thought it'd be pretty funny.

Hayley thinks he does look like Edward. Or Emmett. But I think you guys just look gross.
And Graham needs to go get TAAAAAN. yikes.

Whitney said...

I was actually thinking that Graham looked like that guy before I scrolled down far enough to see that you had written that.

Brenda said...

Hey Sherri! Great to see your blog and hear about all of your accomplishments! Congrats on getting a job and all. I just interviewed and think I got one -- also a clinical position. Yea! Merry Christmas!

Sounds like a fun filled year for the happy couple. I happen to love the picture. Honesty. That's what is lacking from peoples' Christmas pictures. I should send one with me in sweats, both my kids whining or crying and Ian at the computer. That would be accurate. :)

Seriously though, you guys are so cute. I'm glad that everything is going well. Merry Christmas!

What is he wearing? And that doesn't come close to rhyming! Miss you guys.

Fun times, I can't wait for the electronic Christmas card, or is that what this is? Oh well...
