SV Toddler's 2019 Fall Planner


Nothing says "Fall" like 90 degree temperatures, right?

I joke about that, but so many of my Halloween memories over the past 7 years involve applying copious amounts of sunblock at pumpkin patches and watching my kids melt in plush costumes, with autumn temperatures well outside the appropriate range for wool scarves and hot chocolate. Scalding Septembers (and even Octobers) seem to be a recurring theme in our neck of the woods.

So with temps predicted to reach 90 this equinox weekend...well, Happy Fall, Silicon Valley!

Here's my SEVENTH (!!) annual Fall Planner for your families' autumnal amusement. It is far from complete -- I'll keep on adding to it until Halloween -- but at least it's a start.
As always, if you appreciate the work I put into this (and I promise, I put a lot of work into this), please consider using my affiliate links here and throughout this page for all of your fall (and anytime) shopping! You can shop for anything -- from Halloween costumes (we've gotten six or seven from Amazon -- including both kids' this year -- and I've never been less than delighted!) to books (here's my Favorite Fall Books list!) to diamond rings (seriously, buy a diamond ring through my links -- that would be awesome!) via any of the links. I don't charge users for my information, nor do I accept sponsor funds, and I do alllll of this alone (yep, SV Toddler is just me), so shopping via my links is the best way to help me keep this blog going! Thank you!
Check out for my Two Sentence Pumpkin Patch Reviews post as well -- I'll continue to update that as the season progresses.

Happy Fall, my friends! With sunblock in one hand and a pumpkin in the other, lets go enjoy this wonderful season together!



(Here's my little one's costume this year! Toddler X wore it in 2014, and after five years and countless uses in pretend play, it looks as good today as it did that first Halloween. Rubie's Costumes are awesome!)
