A Gurney Christmas

We had a very merry Christmas this year. My dear sweet husband spent endless hours making me the most thoughtful Christmas gift. He made the ultimate dog house of all dog houses. The best part is that he hates dogs, but he loves me! And I love my dogs! It was such a sincere gift. I seriously don’t know how I got so lucky to have such a wonderful husband.

Here is the masterpiece


The ultimate dog house

Additionally he gave me some beautiful turquoise jewelry, new tack for my barrel horse, and a heel o matic so that I can improve my roping skills. I’m entering my first roping this coming week over new years and I’m so excited. Tait has been so supportive and helpful when it comes to my roping. He spends hours practicing with me. I’m a perfectionist and wouldn’t enter until I knew I could catch way more often than I miss.

I’m not so sure that Tait had as good of a Christmas as I did. He is so hard to shop for. However, I got him a drone, a bob berg belt, a new tooled leather wallet, and a couple other smaller things. The drone and belt were definitely his favorite.


It’s safe to say that Santa found us! However, the greatest gift wasn’t found in a store or under the Christmas tree, but was found in the hearts of our family and friends.

Here are some more photos from our Christmas.

I hope you all had as merry of a Christmas as we did.
