Welcome to the World of Sux, Kurt!

It would help to see a closer pic of each plant by itself (larger/closer if possible). I know you can't post more than one pic in your post the regular way (unless you have your photos online & insert with those).

1. looks like a couple -possibly a Pachyphytum or a Sedum. Need to see closer to venture a species ID.

2. Sedum nussbaumerianum

3. variegated? can't make out much detail...could be a Crassula (need to see better pic)

There are many sites dealing with succulents (some specialize in a genus or group). For starters, Desert Tropicals lists many plants, but I find they aren't always accurate (that goes for most things online) There is no one site fits all for identifying your plants. Good to post on forums like this for IDs. Lots of folks to help out.

One site specifically for Sedum:

Here is a link that might be useful: Desert Tropicals
