Jane and Martin and Samuel Jane Stacks' wait finally ends

Jane Stacks has continued to prosper in the little house on Tank Street, while waiting for Martin to graduate from SSU and join her.

Jane gets another money memory, this time in her nice green sweater Another monetary milestone This time in the nice green sweater and with clean hair.

Jane has lunch with Peran Lunch with a friend Peran was in fact the main threat to Jane's fidelity to Martin; she wanted to flirt with him now and then, but nothing ever came of it.

Jane and Martin cuddling on the bed Cuddling with a special friend Martin was always first in her heart (and in her bed); he visted from college practically every day. With, fortunately, no effect whatever on his grades.

As we saw awhile back, Martin graduated with honors and all, and headed back to the neighborhood.

Jane welcomes the now fully-adult Martin Home at last! He didn't even pause at the Bus Stop long enough for us to get a picture.

Jane and Martin talk about college Martin fills Jane in on the last few semesters of gossip. And on his Cum Laude.

Since Jane's art career was bringing in a decent income, Martin was able to devote himself to, well, himself.

Martin on the treadmill Huffing and puffing. Martin is Knowledge, and his Lifetime Want is to maximize all seven skills.

Jane and Martin making out in the kitchen Smooching in the kitchen. There should be a Kissing skill.

With Martin graduated there was nothing to keep them apart; they set their date for the very next weekend (I think it was).

Martin sets up the wedding feast in the dark Preparing the feast. In the early morning light.

Jane and Martin kissing in front of the wedding arch Getting in a little practice before the guests arrive. I made Jane and Martin a more elaborate little wedding space than usual.

Jane rises to greet Hermes and Allegra.  Martin keeps eating. The guests arrive. Hermes Zoom and Allegra Gorey, both of whom Jane and Martin know from the Bright house.

The repairman comes over just in time for the ceremony Time for the Big Event! Once again the repairman happened to be around, and changed into his tux for the ceremony.

The exchange of rings Man and Wife Martin took Jane's last name, so they're both Stacks now. This surprised me, since it was Martin who proposed to Jane when he was still in college, and I thought that was what determined the name. But maybe it has something to do with who initiates the arch-ceremony. Or something.

The groom may kiss the bride, or vice-versa The groom may kiss the bride. Or vice-versa.

The traditional after-wedding kickybag The traditional after-wedding kicky-bag game This was entirely their idea.

The repairman fixes the tub in his tux The repairman finished off the job in his tux. I think he even charged them for the time he spent at the ceremony, the cheapskate.

The repairman returns to his truck The rest of his customers today are going to be surprised. I should arrange for the next wedding to have like a pizza-delivery person in the audience. Do maids come to weddings?

The traditional after-wedding arm-punching Later, the traditional after-wedding arm-punching I assume this was autonomous too; I'm not usually that silly at weddings. Aren't the girls macho?

The limo arrives The limo arrives. Off to the traditional brief but refreshing honeymoon.

Back from honeymoon; kissing on the lawn Home again. Mr. and Mrs. Jane Stacks

All that having happened, Jane went back to work.

Yet another money memory for Jane

But only briefly.

Jane's tummy pops out Jane pops. She is Family, after all, and her lifetime ambition involves children.

Pregnant Jane discusses math with Eleanor Raptor Jane spent a very social pregnancy. Discusing math with the local Romance sims. (Eleanor looks skeptical.)

Somewhere in here we bought the Nightlife expansion, which has lightning bolts and chemistry and stuff.

Martin hearts Jane Martin ♥s Jane.

Jane hearts Martin Jane ♥s Martin.

And eventually...

Jane in labor Jane in labor. Martin in the usual silly hat.

Jane and Samuel Welcome, Samuel! Samuel "Smoke" Stacks; i'n't he cute?

After putting Samuel to bed in his new crib in the study, Jane and Martin relax by trying on some new clothes (Jane went on a big shopping spree somewhere in there).

Jane and Martin in weird orange clothes The latest fashions. Some of these Nightlife clothes are pretty (um) festive.

Domestic bliss with baby and orange clothes Domestic bliss Okay, so maybe these clothes aren't really intended for this setting.

And in almost no time at all...

Samuel's birthday already! Samuel's birthday already!

Samuel is a toddler Toddler Samuel He has his father's hair.

Samuel in his crib Night night! Jane in more sensible (and very flattering) clothes.

Note the photo of baby Samuel on the wall. Jane got the Antique Camera career reward, and Martin's been playing with it.

Martin clowning with the camera "Say Cheese!"

So there we are. Expect more skilling, more promotions, more children, and more unnecessary pictures sometime in the future.
