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.

American Idol Time

So, what do you all think about Shibon getting the ax?  Who do you think will win?    Let's get the predictions out there.  Sorry for the blurry logo, but you get the idea.  Maybe it means AI is fading fast.   I think it will come down to Crystal and Lee.   I am really happy that Aaron is still on, though.     ??????

I agree, Crystal and Lee are my favorite. I haven't like Shibon all that much the last few weeks and I know the judges raved over her this week, but I didn't think she was that good. I thought that everyone did a really good job last night though, my least favorites were probably Shioban and Crystal (still love her though!).

Colin & Lori said...

Is that show still on?

abbynormal said...

Colin, I was thinking the exact same thing.

Jason and Dana said...

I don't really care who wins. I think it will be Crystal or Lee though. I kind of lost interest when Andrew got kicked off. But I think it's funny how Simon said it was the "Girls year" and there's only 1 girl left and 4 boys.

Jason and Dana said...

girls' year?

Crystal said...

No idea. At all. But I am all in favor of a Crystal winning.

David and Debby said...

i am in favor or crystal, too. i really, really like lee but he seems pretty similar to kris allen and david cook.
