The comedian is mom to daughter Kit, 5, and son Spencer, 3
Mindy Kaling's little ones are enjoying the spooky season.
On Wednesday, Kaling, 44, shared some adorable photos of her two kids on her Instagram Story as they celebrated Halloween. For the holiday, daughter Katherine "Kit" Swati, 5, dressed up as Princess Tiana from Disney's The Princess and The Frog, while son Spencer Avu, 3, went as a firetruck.
The family enjoyed trick or treating together, with Kaling donning a Cookie Monster mask for the outing.

"My kids are such a huge part of my life and I knew growing up, I was always obsessed with romantic love and obsessing about boys," Kaling said. "Even when I was like, 13 or 14 years old. I was never someone that boys wanted to date or do anything with, so it sort of made the passion and interest more intense, if that makes sense."
"I was very boy-crazy with zero success, so I had this pent-up interest. I always, you know, a lot of projects I write and work on are about women who are obsessed with marriage. Both because I relate to it and because I think it's really funny."
"And there is also a desperation to it that is, you know, makes you incredibly unhappy. And in my 20s, wanting to find someone, anyone, to settle down with," Kaling told Bozzi.
"But I feel blessed because I was also, if equal to my desire to find a man, I wanted to have children. And that intensified when my mother died," she later revealed. "Because for me, I was like I don't want to be on my death bed, hopefully in my comfortable hospital room or even better, in my own home, and not have anybody around my bed."
"I want there to be kids and I want there to be grandkids. And that to me was way more important than these other sort of shallow things of like, 'I want my six-bedroom house in the Palisades and my kids going to school with my husband who's a surgeon."
"That was all important to me but the thing that was the most important to me was this relationship with my phantom children that I didn't have," Kaling added.
