Christmas Photos!

Christmas 2008 - 1

It was an excellent Christmas in Dallas, filled with family and lots of good times.

Christmas 2008 - 29

We must have all been very good, because Santa (and Mom and Dad and all the family) was very good to us!

Christmas 2008 - 24

Christmas 2008 - 17

The food was good, the company even better. To see all the photos from Christmas, click here.

And happy new year!

Snow Day!

The wind chill this morning is -17 and it's snowing. I have to admit, I'm kind of excited to have an excuse NOT to run all my errands today.

So, if anyone needs me, I'll be here on the sofa, wrapped up in blankets, enjoying my own personal snow day.

(The clip is from the movie "Elf" which is actually a really cute Christmas movie. I thought there was more to this cute little duet, but that's all they wrote!)

Thursday, December 11, 2008 Family Tree

I just started playing with the family tree tool at and it's addictive and kind of fun! I think it would be so neat if a lot of us started contributing to it, uploading photos, adding events to the timeline, etc., to create a living picture of what's going on with our family.

I think I sent out invitations via the website for people to join me, but if you didn't get one don't be offended! It was something of a squirrely process! Just send me an email if you want to join or leave a comment here and I'll be sure you get on.

I'll start adding photos once I have access to them from home!

Las Cruces

I promised photos of Thanksgiving in Las Cruces and, more importantly, the bundle of adorableness that is my nephew!

Uncle and Nephew
Seth was immediately taken with his uncle Brandon. He shouted "UNCLE! UNCLE!" throughout the whole trip, wanting Brandon nearby, playing with him, or watching what he was doing at all times. It was pretty freaking adorable.

I was surprised at how well he did on the hike we took on Friday. He didn't complain much, and walked a lot of the way by himself. But he was a little too fascinated with rocks — of which there were MANY lining the path — and he really wasn't having any of the backpack/carrier his parents provided.

Lacy and Seth
He did, however, get pretty sleepy by the end, and he took a nap on my shoulder for a while until my arms gave out and I had to give him up to someone else to carry. He was pretty good at saying "Lacy" because his speech therapist's name was Lacy!

Overall, he is such a sweet, fun, happy boy! He's a joy to be around, and I know his parents and grandparents are so very, very proud.

We got 4 inches of snow yesterday in Broomfield, and I awoke this morning to the most intricate coating of frost over everything. Absolutely beautiful.

A Guide to Lacy on the Web

So, I'm on the web a lot. A LOT, a lot. More than I probably should be. But there are a lot of places to keep up with my various interests and what I'm doing, and I thought I should create a handy-dandy list for anyone who is interested.

First and foremost, this blog is best for you, my family and friends, who want to keep up with me. This is where I post personal stuff about my life, my travels, my work, my photos, etc. If you fall into the category of family and or friends, never fear! You are in the right place. This blog's for you!

If, however, you are interested in what else I'm doing, here's where to look:

  • Swurl – The Web According to Lacy – OK, so this is the mac daddy of them all. This nifty little service aggregates (almost) everything I do online. Not only will you be able to see blog posts, photos and links to interesting stuff, like you can here, you will also see what movies I'm watching from Netflix, what stuff I've added to my Amazon wish list, and all my mini updates from Twitter and Facebook. The only thing NOT aggregated on this page is my livejournal, because it's not supported yet. But as soon as it is, I'll add it. If you want a quick overview look at what else I'm doing online, this is the place for you!

  • The Spiral Notebook – This is what I like to think of as my "professional" blog. I write here about my trials and travails with writing and review books that I've read. When I become a rich and famous author, this will be my website. Unless I make a better one. ;)

  • Lux Aeterna – This is my livejournal and as such, is mostly about fannish things — TV shows and movies I watch, books I read, etc. It's mostly a good way for me to keep in touch with my online friends. Anyone is welcome to read, just beware the rabid fangirls.

  • The Me Makeover – This blog started about a year ago as just a place for me to record my progress on my resolutions and goals, and it continues as such.

  • Photos on Flickr – This is my flickr page. All my flickr photos rotate in that cute little box on the right hand side of this page, and you can get there by clicking on any of them. But if you'd like to bookmark the main page, this is it.

  • Twitter – Twitter is a "micro-blogging" service, through which you can only make posts of 140 characters or fewer. Allison told me to get on Twitter, so I blame her for this, exclusively.

And that's it! OK, so it's a lot. And yes, I might have a problem. But I also have fun.

See you on the web!

So. Much. Snow.

So, the drive from Santa Fe to Denver that should have taken about six hours, maybe seven because we had a leisurely lunch? Took TWELVE HOURS. We got to Colorado Springs and everything just stopped. It usually takes about an hour to travel the 60 or so miles from Denver to Colorado Springs. Last night? It took four hours.

Seriously. Four hours. I wanted to kill somebody. Particularly CDOT, who had not plowed the roads. At all.

That's the end of my complaining, I swear. Photos to follow.
