SUCCESS!!!! And in more ways than one!
We got our 2013 Penney's snow globes this morning, and thanks to a wonderful cashier at the Penney's store at the Corallville Mall in Iowa City (thanks, Jessica!), we also got the 2012 snow globe that they didn't have last year!! They weren't handing those out, and it seems that they only have a small number of them left. But we were told to pick them up when she found put that we collect them.
So now we have a continuous collection and not a missing 2012.
