Have you met his kids and spent time with them? If not, Thanksgiving dinner is not the best time and place to meet dad’s new girlfriend. If so, why didn’t you ask him if you could join them? Maybe he assumed you wouldn’t want to go. Maybe his definition of “committed” is different than yours (like, he means “not dating anyone else” while you mean “moving toward marriage, meeting families, etc.”). Maybe his ex was invited to his dad’s and he worried it would be awkward. We can’t possibly know — you need to ask him why you were excluded and tell him what you want in the future, then see if that’s something he’s on board with.
