They're so cute.  How old are they now?

Being that my lineage patriot who came over to fight against the king in our Revolution, being a sail maker from Belfast, I checked my closet and I have nothing green to wear.   :fav255:

They're four months old now. And they are ridiculously adorable

We spent a week with them at the start of the month so that we were in Jacksonville for their baptism.

Now I won't get to see them until they're about a year old, when Paul and Rachel are planning to visit Ireland around Thanksgiving time  :fav286:

I made the shamrock onesies with their names that the boys are wearing. The boys definitely make them look cuter :)

OMG!  DCM, your nephews are so adorable!  Soooo cute!  Double trouble... LOL

When you see them again they'll be crawling or walking and getting into all sorts of mischief!  And I love the shirts you made for them.  This way you can tell them apart too! 

I'm sure you had a great time visiting with Paul and his quickly expanding family in Florida!  What did you all do while you were there?  Did the weather cooperate?  Did you go to Disneyworld?

They definitely need name tags - even Paul got them mixed up at times! When they're side by side, it's a little easier because Patrick (the older twin) is a bit smaller. But it's incredibly difficult to know what baby you're holding when the other one is on the other side of the room  LOL

We didn't really do much in JAX. We were only there for a week, so we didn't get the chance to go to Disney this visit.
Because the boys were born at 31 weeks, their paediatrician recommended that they don't come into contact with many people until they reach 6 months, particularly because their lungs were underdeveloped. So Paul and Rachel have only taken them out for the baptism and a few short trips while shopping.

The weather was great. It was nice and warm without being humid. It was especially nice given that we had snow here a few days before we left Scotland!

Next time we visit, we'll definitely have to stay for longer and visit more of Florida!

A week isn't long enough!  Next time you'll have to do some sightseeing...that is if Paul and Rachel are still in Florida!  They are always on the move.

31 weeks is early, so I understand keeping the twins away from the public. My oldest was born at 42 weeks.   LOL  I had to evict him from my womb since he had no plans to come out on his own. He was born so late he practically could crawl out.

Yeah, a week really wasn't enough time to spend there. Unfortunately that was all the time that I was able to get off work and that was just because it was mid-term break.

But there's nothing much to do in Jacksonville  LOL But there are a few places nearby that look nice. We visited Amelia Island which was really pretty but we were only there for the duration of lunch. Next time we'll definitely be visiting St Augustine and possibly Savannah

And I would definitely like to visit Disney World or Universal and Harry Potter World

What a couple of cute little guys :) Love the shirts, too! Congrats on being an auntie, DCM! It sounds like you had a nice trip to see them--hopefully the time until the next one will fly by!

  • post How to stage a Hollywood comeback - 24 May
  • Avoiding tabloid headlines, choosing the right director and knowing your eccentricities are just a few of the secrets to Nicole Kidman?s reinventionFor all intents and purposes, the 70th Cannes film festival belongs to Nicole Kidman. She has four offerings his year and seems to be a virtual one-woman invasion on the Croisette. She?s the ruthless head of a girls? seminary in Sofia Coppola?s The Beguiled; she reigns as the intergalactic punk monarch Queen Boadicea in How to Talk to Girls at Parties; she goes deadpan in high-concept head-scratcher, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, from The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos. She also forcibly integrates TV into the festival by virtue of her star power with a turn in season two of Top of the Lake.

  • post Why I bluffed my way into North Korea: Claude Lanzmann on his Pyongyang lover - 24 May
  • He said he was making a film about taekwondo. But the great French director was actually on the trail of an old flame he had a secret romance with in the 1950sAt 91, Claude Lanzmann is a virtual folk memory of cinema. He is the former teenage fighter in the French resistance whose Jewish family went into hiding when war broke out. In 1985, he directed Shoah, the eight-hour documentary about the Holocaust composed almost entirely of first-person testimony. Now in Cannes, he has premiered a film about his personal experiences in North Korea. Napalm is a movie that, initially, takes its cue from the underreported fact that the US used the incendiary weapon in the Korean war of 1950-53. Related: Napalm review ?

  • post The Beguiled review ? Sofia Coppola contrives hilariously fraught feminist psychodrama - 24 May
  • Colin Farrell plays a wounded soldier who throws himself on the mercy of a ladies? seminary during the American civil war ? and sets them all of a decorous flutterSofia Coppola delivers a very enjoyable southern melodrama, the tale of a handsome, badly wounded Union soldier in enemy terrain during the American civil war who throws himself on the mercy of a ladies? seminary ? of all the outrageous things. Their inhabitants are all of a decorous flutter at the idea of this semi-unclothed male to whom they must minister, intimately. With its hilariously fraught psychodynamic, the film has hints of Black Narcissus and the famous Diet Coke ad about office workers admiring a perspiring worker slaking his thirst. It is adapted by Coppola from the 1966 Thomas P Cullinan novel - already filmed by Don Siegel in 1971 with Clint Eastwood in the lead role. Continue reading...
