Happy new year!

We've been busy cleaning rust and home birthing, and I apologize for the lack of updates. Here are some photos of all our new additions: our 2 C&P Pilots and Alistair Finley, born December 31st at 9:24pm ... just in time to ring in 2013. 

Our first C&P Pilot is ready to print complete with rollers and Boxcar base, but our second needs a bit more cleaning because it sat outside on someone's porch for more than a handful of years. Both need a couple of parts (one needs a spring and the other needs a small repair to a roller arm), but they should be up and running as soon as the weather is warmer (so that spending time in the garage isn't like hanging out in a giant freezer). 

Alistair Finley is a joy. He'll be 2 months old tomorrow. Time flies, right? Exactly. He was born at home on New Year's eve. He weighed 8lbs, 10oz and was 21.5 inches long. His big brother was a little disappointed that he didn't get an instant playmate in Alistair, but he's adjusted well to having a baby around the house. They'll be playing with each other soon enough, so it's been nice to enjoy newborn snuggles again while on maternity leave.

Thanks for all your patience! Once our presses are ready, we'll be happy to start printing. It's going to be awesome! :)
