17.5k to 401k and 5k, (or 6k if your 50), given that you have the earned income to show for the contribution.

Yes you can max out both each year.

**edit.. the 17.5k is for 2013. I beleive it's 17k for 2012.

There is an income limit (like 150k) for the Traditional IRA. After a certain amount, the contributions are not deductible.

We're still eligible for our Roths for about another 4-5 years.

Absolutely. Although if you are maxing your 401 I suggest maxing a Roth instead.
