I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

I have SO much on my mind lately (a lot of it good!) but this post needs to be about Reese! This weekend (we only had the weekend!) we spent multiple hours preparing for Reese's campaign to run for Sophomore Class President for next year. I'll admit, I had a good time! Reese is SUCH a great kid and so much fun to work with, and he and I just really, really blend well, that we got a tremendous amount of work done and tomorrow morning, we'll head for the school very early to hang up his flyers and posters!

He has about 6 different flyer designs, but I won't share them here, as that would be a pain, but I WILL show you the posters - he was allowed 3 posters and 20 flyers. Here are the three posters:

This is my favorite one (above). The only thing about it is that he used an original 11X14 portrait for this poster as we had no way of getting a big enough copy of it!! He'd better bring that one home after the election is over!!

I think this one is just plain fun: Reese is great at laughing at his "differences" and he highlights that by having six (instead of 10) reasons to vote for him. We made little "quote bubbles" and put in one characteristic for each finger, and each bubble points to a finger. ;o)

He thought this one was a fun play on words. You can't really see in the photo, but the word "Russian" has quotations marks around it, so that you read "rush in" as well as "Russian".

Good luck, Reese!!! Reese for President of the Sophomore Class!!

Jane Smith said...

NDMom said...

Oh, How fun! Thanks for sharing and the posters look great! No doubt Reese would make a wonderful class president!

Hey Missy~
Does Reese happen to have a facebook that Lindsey could follow, or whatever it is you do with facebooks?

Missy, What a handsome son you have. I would definitely vote for him because he obviously has a great sense of humor and you need that in politics:)
I will pray that he will be the sophomore class president. My e-mail is rrbobinger@aol.com

Missy said...

LOL, Jodi! Yes, Reese is on Facebook. Have Lindsey do a search on "Reese Voigts". ;op

Jodi said...

Yay! found him:)


We gotta talk Missy.

I LOVE this kid :)

by the way, I googled his name and came up with a different guy on facebook that had some rather questionable things on it....So anyone else doing that....it's NOT the same Reese, he's a GOOD kid :)

Jodi said...

ok last comment,I promise ;)

the 'questionable' guy was spelled Voigt, not Voigts...that would explain it.

I just KNEW your son wouldn't have those things on his :)

Missy said...

LOL, Jodi! You are such a character! Don't search him on google. Go to Facebook and put his name in there, remembering the "s" in "Reese", not a "c". Reese Voigts. Have your daughter write a little note and tell him that her mom is an RR mom.

Reese is an AWESOME kid, probably the nicest kid I've ever known, ever. Whoever he chooses for a wife had better be just as awesome!! ;op (I hope I'm not going to be one of "those" MIL's!!)
