Spending the holidays at the hospital is never easy but some nurses at Children's Hospital Colorado helped spread some cheer for the tiniest patients and their families.

 Patients in the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU, were wrapped up by nurses who are part of the Sunshine Committee, according to a spokesperson for the hospital.

The sunshine committee is made up of nurses and clinical assistants whose goal is to spread sunshine by doing things to help families celebrate their baby, no matter how sick they are, the hospital said.

The committee works on several projects including name signs for patient doors, marking monthly birthdays, commemorating holidays, hosting a Halloween costume contest and setting up holiday photo shoots – including this year’s holiday photo shoot.
