Step 1: Get bundled up. This includes any "babies" who may be accompanying us.
Step 3: Gather tools and begin to work.
Step 4: Soon enough, realize that work time is over and play time has begun.
Step 5: Come inside, take off our outdoor clothes and shoes in the sunroom, help C and D hang up their own coats. Enter the house and enjoy the warmth.
Step 6 (optional, for days when we're feeling ambitious): Sit down for a little tea party.
