"Merry Texmas Y'all!" Lambert captioned the holiday greeting. In her social media post, the "Bluebird" singer also shared a photo of her Christmas card, which said, "Love from the McLoughlin herd," and showed off her large menagerie of animals, including eight dogs, two cats, six horses and a miniature horse. It was her love of animals that inspired Lambert to urge her fans to take care of them, especially over the holidays, as well as into the new year.

"Louise here reminding yall to love a shelter pet this holiday season, and to add volunteering at your local shelter to your 2020 to do list!" Lambert wrote, sharing a photo of one of her rescue dogs.

Lambert and McLoughlin tied the knot in January, which is why they are still figuring out what their own traditions will be. When Lambert celebrated her 36th birthday on Nov. 10, she admitted she wasn't sure how the two of them would celebrate, or if she was willing to let her husband plan her day on her behalf.

"It's hard for me to give up control," Lambert conceded to Taste of Country. "He was like, 'We could do something on the Sunday,' because we're in Orlando the night before, on the 9th, and then we come in and it's like a 12-hour drive, so we wouldn't get in until noon. I'm like, 'Well, we could have a brunch or a dinner, I don't know.' He said, 'Let me plan it.'"

"We're still new so I haven't let him plan anything yet," she added. "Girls are planners. But I trust him. He's super together. He's way more together than me, and organized."

Lambert and McLoughlin got married on Jan. 26, but waited until Feb. 16 to announce that they had tied the knot.


"In honor of Valentine's Day I wanted to share some news," Lambert posted on social media at the time. "I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you Brendan McLoughlin for loving me for.... me."
