The family reflected on the meaning of the holiday as they enjoyed a quiet one together
The pro dancer mom, 38, and her Beverly Hills, 90210 alum fiancé, 50, spent the holiday enjoying quality time with son Zane Walker, 16 months, as well as Green's sons with ex Megan Fox — Journey River, 7, Bodhi Ransom, 9, and son Noah Shannon, 11.
In an Instagram Reel shared on Sunday, Burgess gave peeks at her Thanksgiving with the toddler, writing, "Thankful ✨🤍🙏🏻 A little glimpse of yesterday. Family, love, friends and amazing food (that this year I decided to not cook and I loved that choice for me 😊)."
"I’m grateful for so many things but especially this little tribe of mine. Grateful to love them and to know what it feels like to BE loved by them. Supported by them. Through the ups and downs, the transitions and lessons, the heartbreak and healing it’s all easier with them beside me. Though this year looked different to what I thought it would, it’s exactly what it’s meant to be," she continued.
"So much of what I’ve manifested for my life is now my reality and I know the rest is coming. So, I sit today and everyday in gratitude for all I have, I sit in patience for that which is coming, and I sit in unconditional love in abundance for this life and this tribe of mine. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. To all 1M of you I’m grateful you’re here ✨♥️."

In addition to Zane, Green is also dad to son Kassius Lijah, 21, with ex Vanessa Marcil.
"You are the kind of father I could’ve only dreamed of (and I did) for my children. You are the kind of partner to me that I thought only existed in my journal writings," she wrote. "Life without you was pretty wonderful but life WITH you? It’s a dream."
The Dancing with the Stars alum ended the sweet message by calling their blended family the "easiest thing I've ever done."
Speaking about co-parenting on a recent episode of the Oldish podcast, Green praised Fox, saying that along with his fianceé, the three "co-parent really well together."
"When we need to, we communicate really well, we're open to things. We don't take things personally. It is my goal, and I think it's her goal as well, that the kids are in as healthy an environment as they can be in," he said.
"I've really come to the understanding and the realization within the last five years that I think people do a huge disservice in thinking they don't want a separation or a divorce to affect their kids because it will. It will absolutely affect your kids. The part of it you have control over is how it affects your kids, whether it's a positive experience and you co-parent with the other person well, or you make it as loving an experience as possible, or a very angry head-to-head, fighting constantly," Green noted.
Instead of making kids feel "stuck in the middle," the three have focused on the fact that "it always has to be about the kids."
