DENVER (AP) -- It wasn't fresh mountain snow but toilet paper that blanketed the front lawn of the Colorado governor's mansion Thanksgiving morning.

Gov. Bill Ritter told KUSA-TV that he and his wife noticed shortly after dawn Thursday that someone had "teepeed" the front lawn.

State officials said it was the first time that happened to the 101-year-old landmark.

Ritter joked about it, saying he has teenage children at home and that it was probably a prank. First Lady Jeannie Ritter said she would be worried if the house had been egged or damaged but the toilet paper prank is harmless.

The 1908 Georgian revival home is near the state Capitol in Denver.
