Welcome to the Genetti Family Blog

My name is Brianna. I have been following many blogs for some time and decided it was time to join the blogging world. I am not a journalist or even a very creative writer by any means. But, I believe this will be a great way to document our lives. We have great lives and are very blessed, so I would like to share with all of you.

I will start with a breif introduction of our cast and crew,

This is Dave and I.

I will start with Dave. He is an amazing husband and father. I fell in love with his wonderful smile and his natural ability to make anyone around him smile. He the best husband in the world. Before I met him I could have only dreamed that such a man existed. He always makes sure that our family has everything we need and want before he ever thinks of himself. Dave works very hard to provide for our family. He is employed by a company out of Salt Lake that deals industrial equipment. He is the Idaho regional sales rep and is doing excellent. His favorite place in the world is on top of his horse. He is a great rider/trainer and loves every minute of it. Dave loves to play with our kids, and they learned at a very young age that Daddy is the fun parent. Aside from being a father and husband Dave is also the Young Mens' secretary at Church.

I am loving life being a wife and a mother. They are the hardest most amazing jobs I have ever had. I am a stay-at-home mom and I love that. There is nothing in this world that I would rather do. I am also a soon to be full time student at the University of Pheonix. I will be studying Accounting, and I am hoping to become a CPA. I also just got called to be an Achievement Day leading in our ward. I will be working with the 10 and 11 year olds at Church, and mostly just having tons of fun.

This is our sweet Hanna

Hanna was born in July of  '09. She has been a tiny spit fire from the very beginning. She was 6 weeks premature and came into this world at a whopping 3 lbs 13 oz and 17 inches long. She was TINY. But she never needed oxygen (other than once when she was screaming because they were giving her a bath) or any other treatment. She was in the NICU at EIRMC for nine days until she could eat and hold her body temperature. I think the scariest thing I have ever done is to bring home a 3 lb 12 oz baby (that was her weight on the day we brought her home). Hanna has been amazing us ever since. She is now two and a half years old and still a tiny spit fire. Hanna is a very determined little girl but she has a very tender heart. She is so SMART. At two and a half she can speak in full, clear sentences. She can count to 12 (random, I know), identify many shapes, letters, colors and almost any animal, spell her name, and she is beginning to color within the lines! She blows us away daily. Her favorite shows are Curious George and Strawberry Shortcake. Her favorite movie is Tangled, and she loves to play with her toys all day long.

This is our little Tucker Man

Tucker William was born 4/25/2011. He was also premature, and a tiny little fighter. At four weeks early he weight just 5 lbs exactly, and was 18 inches long. He was in the NICU for only four days at Mountain View Hospital. He quickly capture the hearts of all that worked with him at the hospital. He has been the sweetest little boy since the beginning. He is very social and will flirt with any girl in sight. Just like his daddy he is very handsome, and it doesn't take much time for him to win over the ladies. He has recently discovered his voice and he loves it. He gibbers constantly, occasionally throwing in the two words he knows: Dada and hi. I work will him on Momma every day but he just smiles at me. He is almost 9 months old now and still only wears 6-9 month clothes, but his sized never slows him down. He recently learned to army crawl and is making tracks all over our living room. He is sitting up on his own (until he gets distracted) and is working on actually crawling. He is always on the go and has to kick his legs even when you are holding him. It is so fun to watch him discover new things every day.

and we cannot forget Koda

Koda is our family dog. He is an English Setter and a great big furry sweet heart. I have never been around a dog that was so tender hearted. He was Dave's dog before I came along and is eight years old He loves to chase birds and anything else he finds on the farm, and run. He spends most of the day immitating a rug on our floor (as demonstrated by the picture) but also loves being outside and especially accompanying us on our horse rides in the mountains. He is great with the kids and Hanna especially loves him. She is always trying to boss him around and he just looks at us as if to say "do I have to?" We all love Koda; he is the best dog.

A few highlights about our family:

We were just sealed for time and all eternity in July of this year at the Rexburg Idaho LDS Temple. It was an amazing experience. I will never forget kneeling across that altar from Dave and promising to be his wife for eternity. After they sealed Dave and I to each other they brought in our children to be sealed to us. They were like little angels all dressed in white. I will post more about our experience with pictures soon.

We love to ride horses and both of our kids, as young as they are, have been on horses. Hanna loves it and loves horses. I think Tucker is still too young to understand and is mostly just along for the ride. We also love to go camping. We bought a camping trailer this last fall in hopes to take our kids and tour the mountains and country side around us. We were able to take the trailer out a few times before winter set in and we love it.

We have a house that Dave built. We love it. It is beautiful and we love the area in which we live. It is located on the family farm that Dave's dad, Mike, owns. We are working to decorate and put the finishing touches on the house, and this summer we will work on landscaping. Yuck. I love decorating as much as I hate landscaping. However, I am excited to see the end product. It will be completely worth it.

Our amazing family pictures were taken by my very talented cousin Karen Brown.
