We spent Thanksgiving with Marc's family in Rexburg, Idaho. It is
Marc's favorite holiday to spend with his family so we make sure we go
every year. Last year was the first year we didn't have to drive 13
hours to get there so the kids were relieved about that....Bentley would
always complain relentlessly about the anticipated travel, but always
had fun once he was there. He loves the extra attention he gets with
his grandparents and aunt Megan. While we were there Lyla locked
herself in Marc's mom bathroom and put on her make-up and cut her hair.
(Cutting our own hair runs in the family.) She just got a cute bob from
the last self cut and so now it is a little choppy. She is our little
bundle of mischief.
Hello, we're the Bratsmans. We met at BYU and were married August 22, 2001 in the Salt Lake City Temple. We now live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and have three kids Bentley, Olivia and Lyla. Marc is a CPA and works for Grant Thornton and his client's include REI, BDA, TNXI and the PBA (bowling). Chanel is a stay at home mom, and runs a internet marketing business with Marc. Marc still likes to play basketball, wakesurf, wakeboard, snowboard, go to any sporting event, watch every Jazz game on TV, play rock band but most of all spend time with Chanel and hang out with friends. Chanel loves flowers and was a floral designer before she had kids. She also likes to snowboard, wakeboard, try to wakesurf, and spending time with family and friend. We both like going out to eat and unfortunately spend way too much money doing this, which is probably why our kids will go to community college. Bentley loves to be the "fastest" play games, make crafts (surprisingly), go swimming, and ride his bike. Olivia likes to go on walks, wear necklaces, give hugs and kisses, and push her dolls in her stroller. She is independent, and tries very hard to make mom and dad laugh.
