Christmas in Cashville

What is it like in Nashville, you ask.  You thought there were just a bunch of hillbillys and banjos?  You asked, "Isn't there fewer teeth in that Southern city?"  You said you heard Miley Cyrus talk about it but wanted to know the truth.  Tanya and I are willing to reveal it unto you....

Alright, so Nashville has changed since this video but not much.  Nashvillians still love to sing and dance.

You couldn't see from this video but, Miley, there was not a memo sent out... no one was in stilettos.  This definitely  IS a Nashville party.

Enough with the funnies, I want to tell you the Probst story over Tanya and I's vacation.  It started off with us flying in on Christmas Eve late because that was the cheapest flight.  500 Delta flights heading east were canceled but somehow ours wasn't.  We touched down to Nashville's 1st "white Christmas" in 17 years.  

After opening our amazing presents, we stopped by Centennial Park downtown to see the Parthenon replica that was on our bucket list to see.  Then we came home and Mom cooked the most delicious lamb that the world may ever know.  We thank you lamb for sacrificing your life for the Probst's enjoyment.  You can be our pet in the afterlife.

Our 1st Christmas miracle was church being CANCELED due to the icy interstate shutting down.  So we went over to the Robinson's house for some wholesome entertainment (as seen in the video above).  We stopped by Sweet CeCe's along the way to see Sister Probst's place of employment.

We also had a visit from Heather and Alan Patton with their son Ari.  Right before i took this picture i heard him yelling, "BUY!  SELL!  BUY!  SELL!"  He is going places, I can feel it. 

Monday started with a visit to Farmer Dan so feed and ride his horses.  Farmer Dan loves his horses, he knows all 33 horses by name.  Here is Tanya breaking in Rock.

We got jealous that the horses were feeding so we went on out traditional senic drive out to Pucket's for some good ol' Sothern BBQ.

So the snow melted and the dreamy vacation with the family climaxed with a NHL game.  The Preds lost but the Probst family won from family bonding with their new daughter Tanya Rae.

So you see, Nashvillians like music, dancing, food, and good company.  The sun came out and melted the snow and Tanya and I's hearts.  We hope to get back soon.  Thanks Mom and Dad and Jenny for an amazing Christmas.  P.S.  Tanya and I were on a hunt for a great landscape scene.  Let me know what one you like the best.
