            The husband in this dissolution of marriage proceeding appeals the property division provisions of the district court’s decree.  OPINION HOLDS: We find it equitable to modify the property division, including ordering the husband to transfer $62,000 of his 401(k) to the wife and to make an additional property settlement payment of $37,000 to the wife.  We remand to the district court for entry of any orders needed to effectuate the modification, including orders to protect the children’s ownership interests in the LLC.  We decline to award appellate attorney fees.
