OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — As we end the week, we want to make sure you take time to smile with a story that's sure to brighten your day. The tiniest patients at Nebraska Medical Center and Methodist Women’s Hospital are getting into the Halloween spirit.

NICU nurses at Nebraska Medical Center and the March of Dimes Family Support program teamed up to make sure babies in the NICU had a costume this year.

Some of the babies are less than 24 hours old and the costume party isn't just for the little ones — their big brothers and sisters got in on the fun too with treat bags and snacks.

At Methodist Women's Hospital's NICU, babies were also dressed for the season.

The hospital said, "Fifty-four costumes were donated by Connected Forever, a nonprofit organization with a mission to support families who’ve experienced pregnancy loss, infant loss or a NICU journey by providing resources, education and emotional support."

Methodist Women’s Hospital shared the following video of the babies:
