Thank you for your question.
Your father's will ended on his death. Because your mother was alive on his death, his estate passed to her. Any alternative provisions did not apply.
Your mother is free to make any will she wants. However, if she was unduly influenced into making a will in favour of your sister and cutting you and your other sister out you may be able to contest that will.
You should discuss this with your mother in the meantime.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
