You are correct that it would be well to set up Roths if you are eligible for them. If you AGI is over $150000 annually, you aren't eligible. No matter what your income is, you are each eligible to contribute a non-deductible $2000 annually to a traditional IRA.
Note that each of you can contribute $2000 to an IRA. You can each divide that $2000 between a traditional IRA, and if eligible, a Roth. You can also have more than one IRA of each type and split your contribution any way you wish. You just can go over $2000 each until/unless Congress changes the law.
Best wishes, Chris
