BEAUMONT, Texas — Some Southeast Texas families celebrated the season a little differently Thursday night—with a reunion at a Beaumont hospital.
Former neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) patients and their families gathered between 5 and 7 in the lobby at Baptist Hospital on College.
The evening was complete with milk, cookies and even pictures with Santa Claus.

Staff shared photos of the magical evening with 12News, showing the lobby decorated with pretend snow, wintry trees and a Christmas tree to make even North Pole elves jealous.
Back in June, the hospital installed 6 cameras in the NICU to allow parents to see babies even if they're unable to physically be in the nursery.
The facility is the first hospital in Southeast Texas to install the 'NICVIEW' cameras.
