I Believe in Santa...

Well it's way past time to post for Christmas but I'm doing it anyways.  Our Christmas was great it was so fun because Marcus was actually excited and looking forward to Santa coming.  Let me tell you Santa is one smart guy he knew exactly what Marcus would like.  Marcus got a Broncos football uniform from Santa...helmet, pads, jersey, pants and even a new football.  It was funny because after Marcus got his new uniform on he noticed one thing... that he didn't have any new football shoes to go with his outfit.  What a character! 

Santa got the perfect present for Marcus but the next day was Sunday and that's when we realized that maybe this present was a little too perfect.  Marcus had a little melt down when he realized that he could not wear his new uniform to church, and not only that but not even every day.   There have been some tears but mostly lots of football playing. 

Marcus thinks he is now on the Broncos team and I must admit that he probably wouldn't hurt the team if he was on it!  He calls the Broncos team on the phone, he practices scoring touch downs and he even got some new football shoes for going in the big boy potty. 

So this new present sure made me a big believer in the big man from the north pole.

So Cute! He is definitely a Prestwich (ie the sports fanatic). He is getting so big. Miss you guys!

Very fun! Love the meltdown story. Definitely makes it more real. I think it's very cool that you have a little guy so into football. We haven't had one of those yet. Perhaps Baby L?

I love the helmet. I bet that gets in the way of snuggling and makes it hard to fall asleep, too. :-)
