A Little History:
Our story begins in Pocatello, Idaho, circa 1972, when the lovely Debby Christensen agreed to a first, though fateful date with admirer, David Croshaw. Long story-short, he bade her follow him, and they went arm-in-arm to the Logan, Utah temple for establishment of an eternal family unit, Generation 1, on May 23 1973.

From their first blissful summer in Salt Lake City, educational pursuits took them to Provo/Orem, Utah, birthplace of Leslie and Rebecca, and to San Francisco/Oakland California, birthplace of Colin and Matt. Then, for establishment of livelihood, expansion of the tribe with Abby and Dana, and for raising/unifying of Generation 2, it was back to the roots in Pocatello for a rewarding sojourn.

In time, driven by a raging, but commonly shared sense of adventure and independence, one-by-one, Generation 2 escaped the homeland to distant regions of the country and the world, each ultimately developing their own tribal expansions by pairing with worthy mates and initiating Generation 3.

Now sensing fulfillment of their purpose in Pocatello, Generation 1 has also left those roots and transplanted to Cascade Idaho, from which base, they anticipate more abundant contact with The Posterity, Generations 2 and 3, in the future. That contact however, awaits fulfillment of a call to LDS missionary service in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, wherein they hope to help the state of the world by sharing the love of Jesus Christ.

So now, including Generation 0 (Grandma and Grandpa Christensen) home base includes Yuma, Arizona, Pocatello, Idaho, Cascade, Idaho, Vancouver, BC, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Spokane, Washington, Boise, Idaho, Los Angeles, California, back to Boise, Idaho, and on and on (Generation 3+) to infinity.

Our Mission Statement:
This is the blog of our eternal family unit. Initiated years ago, it served well as a journal, but even more so, as an archive of our personal interaction. It was a gathering place, a confabulation instrument, a unifying force for four generations of widely dispersed and progressively prolific posterity, and their valued associates. Though it served these purposes well for many years, it eventually took a back seat to new-kids-on-the-block, Facebook, and Instagram, and was sadly forgotten.

We now move to resurrect this blog with an added functional purpose of archiving the missionary experiences of Generation 1, of their movements and activities as they participate with The Gathering of Israel in the land northward. In so doing, we hope that via their own comments and posts, this blog will again serve to gather and unify the posterity and their friends.

As in the past, that the young and vibrant may know the old and tired, that enduring bonds may be fostered and maintained, that experience and encouragement may be openly shared, that posterity may embrace truth, and that hearts may be knit together, we must resist detachment despite our geographic divergence. We shall do so here.

I found these sweet "Bot-man" (that's how Eva says it) jammies on clearance at Target, Colby is always putting on Eva's cape from her dress up clothes and pretending like Superman or Batman, so I had to get them.Did you guys have favorite pajamas when you were kids? I think mine were the Jasmine-type ones, remember Abby? I have a vague memory of singing songs when we went to bed wearing those pajamas, but I can't really remember much else.

Don't remember the movie - Raising Arizona? - but there was a line about some jammies that "have Yodas and !#*@! (explitive) on them." I've never really worn PJs, but if I did, those would be my favorite.

Yes, it's coming back to me now. It was Raising Arizona - when Nathan Jr. had been kidnapped and his dad was describing his atire to the Federal BI.

Dad, how could you forget a Raising Arizona line was from Raising Arizona? Honestly, it's like I don't even know you.

As for me - Jasmine jammies, all the way!!

I loved this XL Dracula t-shirt, both Melissa(my sister) and I loved to wear big shirts as pijamas. We would tuck them in our underwear and pull them out the legs. I don't know why, but we thought it was funny.
I'm not sure why my parents let me wear that dracula shirt, because it was a budwiser t-shirt my dad got a long time a go. Funny.
