I designed this set for my co worker, Liz. She ordered them for her bride-to-be daughter as soon as she saw my "Date Night" bears! Unfortunatley, two days after she placed her order, she suffered a stroke and is still recovering. :( Liz has been out for a few weeks now and we're all praying for a peaceful and speedy recovery.

Growing up, who wasn't impressed by the Cosbys? As a little girl, I watched every week and imagined how cool it would be to be Claire Huxtable. She was brilliant, sophisticated, and beautiful! Plus, she was a loving wife and devoted mother, too! As if all that wasn't enough, she was married to a doctor who treated her with dignity and respect and was an equally devoted father! Oh yes, as a little girl Claire was definitely someone I truly admired. In a lot of ways, she reminded me of my own mother. She was always perfectly coordinated when she got dressed up, she was a shimmering example of femininity, and when she spoke not only did people hear her but they actually listened. Now I could go on for days about the two of them, but I won't (you're welcome). But they were both the inspiration for my most recent dolls.
I made the "Cliff" bear a tad bit shorter than "Claire" to pay homage to my daddy, because as much as I admire my mom I adore my dad. Mama's got him by at least a few inches and half the time she wears heels to make it even more noticeable! LOL Notice Claire even has her own little brief case and is all set for court. :)
