Origami Boxes, and gifts of the heart

For Valentines, our son Luke made origami boxes.... well, rather it went like this.  Luke made some really wonderful origami boxes one evening and I thought they were so delightful I asked him if he would make up several of them for Valentines, so that I could put my truffles in them and make a pretty table.  He obliged.
  He's such a sweet lad.
 Aren't they pretty?  
I decided that I would post them as one of the 52 weeks of projects.
 Those little truffles fit in there perfectly (recipe in previous post).

 Luke is also a great cook.  He added this to our Valentine Schmorgesboard (my spell checker says this is not a word).

My Meatloaf doesn't look quite as pretty as his pizza, even though we put it on a lovely crystal plate.

 Another of Luke's accomplishments.  Croissants... they were delicious. 

We had fun this Valentines Day, cooking and decorating together.  During dinner, we watched Dean Martin on You tube singing "That's Amore".   All we needed was our little grandsons to dance with. Our Favorite version of "That's Amore"  is the one where Jerry Lewis joins in.  Eddie didn't know who Jerry Lewis was, so we decided we needed to update his education.  No child should go through life with out at least one Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis Movie don't ya think?
