    You do not show a 0.1uF bypass capacitor across the Vcc and GND leads. This is a minimum requirement for any IC. Many IC's require more than that, such as a 555 timer - they need an 0.1uF and a 1uF minimum.

    You are suffering from "switch bounce".

    Look here: http://www.ganssle.com/debouncing.htm
    It will save me lots of typing, and explain ways to de-bounce your switches.
