Added DiffLines:

**** Since she got the picture of the house out of the real estate section, she knew it was real and that Kris had not magicked it up. 1) Kris told Fred to drive that way 2) there was the house, still for sale. These things told her that Kris had located the house for Fred to buy.

Added DiffLines:

* I thought everyone knew that!


*** The house was already for sale likely at the beginning of the story. Susan shows Kris the real estate classifieds in the paper, so Kris didn't bring his house into existence. It already existed and was on the market. Kris just made sure that Fred, Doris, and Susan would drive right past it and Doris and Fred were convinced to buy the house. Susan is a seven-year-old girl. Despite Mom's hard dose of reality, she probably didn't realize that the dream house already existed and thought that Kris conjured it out of thin air.




to:

** Or Fred is concerned that Kris has decided to move in with the family permanently.
