Mine are 7 mos old too. Here is our imperfect routine. We nurse around 7:30 or 8 then I either bathe them and put them in their sleepers or just change them to their sleepers. Then I nurse them again around 9ish. They usually fall asleep on the nursing pillow and I put them in my bed, complete with bedrails and all for safety. They don't wake up at that transfer like they do during the day (I walk into the bedroom holding the nursing pillow with two sleeping babies on it, then I rest it on the bed while I lift each baby into place).
Of course this isn't solid, because it always seems to get messed up by things going on. I will probably live to regret the nursing to sleep thing, but for now it works.
Ds is old enough to go to sleep on his own, but he usually waits until the girls are down before hopping in bed.
When dh is here, he helps me with the transfer.
Maybe you could put your older ds down first then get the twins to sleep together.
