freak of nature

i'm totally embarrassed to write this post, but it's too intriguing not to share. so, i was digging around the bottom of my closet early this afternoon when i saw this...



kennedy and blakely are known, like cats, to bring random things into our house from outside, so i tried to pick it up to take it back to it's proper home. no luck. i moved my cowboy boots out of the way, thinking the pile of shoes was holding it in place, and i tugged again. when the thing still didn't budge, i followed it to the end...



and discovered...



the branch is growing INTO our house. i swear we're clean people and maintain our house. we're not the best landscapers in the neighborhood, and we're known to have quite a few weeds growing in our backyard, but a new tree growing in our house? i feel so violated. if i pull it, it's not like the roots can come out because it's stuck between the ground and concrete, so i'm assuming it will just grow back. does this mean there's a hole in my closet? this is the most confusing thing that has happened to our house in the 4 years we've lived here. it's like i want to call pest control, but they might think i'm a little crazy if i called them to kill a weed. any suggestions?
