            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Joseph B. McCarville, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (11 pages)

            A mother and father each appeal the juvenile court order terminating their parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find an extension of time should not be granted in this case, termination of the parents’ rights is in the children’s best interests, no exceptions to termination should be applied, and the parents did not preserve their claims regarding reasonable efforts.  We affirm the termination of the parental rights of the mother and father.
