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!

  • Last year?s Batman v Superman almost trashed the Batmobile, but DC needs to harness the Batfleck?s potential to connect its slate of Extended Universe films Related: Ben Affleck says he will be The Batman despite report he would relinquish role If the Marvel Cinematic Universe really does come to a close following the events of 2019?s as-yet-untitled Avengers: Infinity War sequel, as president Kevin Feige has been hinting, it will have achieved something historic. Apart from the odd bump in the road ? anyone remember Edward Norton as Bruce Banner in The Incredible Hulk? ? it might just be possible for fans to rewatch more than 20 movies, stretching back to 2008?s Iron Man, which are all to a greater or lesser extent internally consistent with each other.

  • Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig star in a comic thriller brimming with energy and wit from the returning Ocean?s Eleven directorIt seems, at first, like an impossible caper. Can Steven Soderbergh bring something new to the heist genre after his outstanding Oceans trilogy? The answer, as always, is to have faith in the director-producer-writer-cinematographer-editor-brandy salesman whose ingenuity has kept him one step ahead of audiences for almost 30 years.
    Channing Tatum, working with Soderbergh for the fourth time, is at his sympathetic and charismatic best in Logan Lucky. His Jimmy Logan is a divorced father, injured Iraq war vet, John Denver enthusiast and loving sibling living in Boone County, West Virginia. His wounded leg gets him fired from a construction gig at the Charlotte Motor Speedway because it?s ?a pre-existing condition?. Continue reading...
  • post Which is more Spielbergy ? the new Stranger Things or Ready Player One? - 24 July
  • The trailers for both conjure up the glow of the director?s golden era ? but can Stranger Things out-Spielberg a film directed by the man himself?
    Amid the onslaught of trailers released at Comic Con this weekend, two clips appeared to share a special affinity. The trailers for this year?s Stranger Things sequel and next year?s Ready Player One adaptation both managed to conjure up the golden glow of Amblin-era Spielberg like no other. But even though Ready Player One is a Steven Spielberg project and Stranger Things is not, it?s worth asking which looks more Spielbergian. Let?s apply some analysis. Continue reading...

    Poor Will Byers might have been rescued from the dark alternate dimension that is beginning to bleed into the town of Hawkins, Indiana (otherwise known as the Upside Down) in the Netflix smash. But it looks as if his ordeal is not yet over. As our gang of pre-teens take a trip to the local arcade to play Don Bluth?s Dragon?s Lair video game, Will suddenly sees the Upside Down flash into reality, with himself once again inside it. What?s more, a new, larger beast ? 10 times the size of the Demogorgon from season one and with at least six limbs ? appears to be marauding through the darkened skies. Continue reading...

In Hounds of Love, a movie all the more disturbing for being based on real life, this Australian creep abducts and sexually tortures schoolgirls before killing them.

  • With Anne Hathaway set to star in a film that she will carry on her own, we ask: what can she learn from previous high points of single-actor showsIn Les Miserables, Anne Hathaway won an Oscar for crying ? but how is she with cryo? She?s just signed up for O2, a race-against-time movie centred on a woman who wakes up trapped in one of those sci-fi hypersleep pods so beloved of the Alien franchise. It sounds like a juicy premise for a tense thriller ? O2?s amnesiac protagonist must escape before her air supply runs out ? but it will also see Hathaway join a cinematic club currently dominated by men: movies that are solo showcases for one actor. What could Hathaway learn from other recent examples? Continue reading...
