See ?install.packages.

You seem to be using Windows (you did not say). So the help page says

    repos: character vector, the base URL(s) of the repositories to use,

           i.e., the URL of the CRAN master such as
           '"http://cran.r-project.org"' or its Statlib mirror,
           '"http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN"'. Can be 'NULL' to install
           from local '.zip' files.

and so all you need is

install.packages(c("my1.zip", "my2.zip"), repos = NULL)
