Ninja Turtle Pumpkin

After pulling out all my fall decorations, I realized I had a chalkboard pumpkin but couldn’t think of what to write on it. Since I have it beside a chalkboard sign, I didn’t really want another saying on it so I asked Cory to draw the standard jack o’lantern face on the pumpkin.

Wrong.

Cory had other ideas and this is what I got…

Ninja Turtle Jack o'lantern

A ninja turtle pumpkin. Bless his child-like heart.

He was so proud of his artwork, there’s no way I could erase it. And I do have about 99.9% control of the decorations in the house so .01% for him is the least I can do, right?

Plus, I don’t really decorate for Halloween other than a wreath on my door and “trick or treat” sign you see so I thought it would be fun to leave up ‘ole Donatello at least through Halloween.

Since it is sitting in the window between our kitchen and living room, I did have him draw the jack o’lantern face that I originally asked for on the other side so the kitchen would have a little Halloween decor too.

Do y’all have husbands like mine? I can’t be the only one married to a 12 year old at heart, can I?

By the way, I love that 12 year old heart with everything I am and I wouldn’t expect anything less than Donatello’s face instead of a jack o’lantern :)

    Please don’t cheat poor Cory. He has .1% control not .01%.

    • Aw! You’re right, Papa! Wouldn’t want to cheat Cory would I???

  • Haha, that’s hilarious! My brother is almost 30 but was so obsessed with the turtles as a little boy that I know he’d looooove to have a Donatello pumpkin this year!

    • Yep! Cory just turned 29 and some boys never grow up :)

  • This looks so good!!! I just did a chalkboard pumpkin this weekend too and I’m searching for some fun ideas on how to decorate it!!

    • Thanks, Biana! Obviously I’m way behind on answering comments but I loved your Boo idea!

  • That is awesome!!!
    Don’t worry – my husband has had a KISS pumpkin for the past few years… boys never grow up :)

    • That’s awesome! I wouldn’t want Cory any other way!

  • haha! That is awesome! My husband also loves the ninja turtles and he would love that pumpkin. It actually looks really good too!

    • Oh yeah, he’s a great artist! Some childhood favorites never die, I guess!

  • This is way too funny! Love that youre keeping it arounD! So fun :) :)

  • It is probably a good thing we do not live close to each other. We would never see our husbands because they would be spending way too much time together. Justin would have drawn a Transformer though. I can honestly say I know more about Transformers than I ever thought I would. Ninja turtles seem to be my next lesson that he is working on, lol! Love the chalkboard pumpkin idea! Brilliant!!!

    • BAHAHA!!! My husband loves Transformers too but it would have taken too long to draw! He has perfected his turtle drawing skills the past 29 years!

  • ha! I absolutely love this!

    • Thanks! My husband and his obsession with Ninja Turtles!

  • Cory and his chalkboard skills! This guy needs to open an Etsy shop! ;)

  • Hysterical!! Cory sounds like quite the character… And his crafting skills are much more elevated than my husbands!

  • Oh my gosh, if my husband could draw he would totally do the same thing! haha I’m very impressed! Thanks for linking up!!

  • HAHA – this is amazing!! lOVE IT :)

  • That is too cute!! I love it when hubbies get excited about things like holiday decorations…even if its not exactly what we had in mind :) its cute and very original. i love it!

  • ahahahaha! I love cory’s ninja turtle pumpkin idea! happy tuesday, Paige :)
