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 have always thought Becky looks like "someone" but could never put my finger on it. Last night, I "got" to watch a lovely movie with Crystal Bernard and Steve Gutenberg on Hallmark and it REALLY struck me that she looks a LOT LOT LOT like Becky.

I loved her in Wings!

Anyway... what do you guys think?

I've never been told this before, but now that you mention it, I can see some similarities in our features :)

Definitely the middle two pictures they look a ton alike! But when Helen does her full smile she looks different than Becky. Wasn't her name Helen on Wings?

Jason and Dana said...

A stretch at best.
Hallmark? You watch the Hallmark channel? :)

David and Debby said...

I don't know about Becky, but that Ray sure was HOT, eh?

Crystal said...

I think the middle picture (periwinkle shirt) lOoks just like Becky. Also, if you catch her movies ( there are two) on hallmark, you WILL see it. The expressions, the face...

Actually matt was watching hallmark and I was cleaning so I just left it when he went to work. There are some way cool flicks on there. Course, they don't compete with Sunday football or bopping around nearly-nude whilst attempting fornication and/or immoral relationships but we like it. Besides big love is not allowed here anymore.
