I'm maxed out on my 401K contributions, and we put $2,000 each (my wife and I) in Roth IRAs. Is there anywhere else we can rathole some money with some tax breaks?

If there are stocks or tax-efficient mutual funds that you want to invest in for the long haul, the fact that the investment is in a taxable account won't necessarily mean much current tax. Capital gains are not taxed until you sell, and then at favored rates if you've held for more than a year.

If your employer offers a "Cafeteria Plan," you could add pre-tax $$$ to pay for expected medical expenses and/or health insurance premiums, and child daycare costs within the calendar year.
