            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Virginia Cobb, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (4 pages)

            A father and mother separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to two children.  The father contends the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the district court and termination was not in the children’s best interests.  The mother contends she should have been granted a six-month extension to regain custody of the children.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the parents’ parental rights to the children.
