Wiring 2 garage outdoor lights


I am changing our 2 garage door lights with new. The lights are controlled by two 3 way switches (one in garage, one in house). the wire is just 2 wire (black and white). I didn't pay close attention when I removed the old lights. I wired the new with the 3 black together and the 3 white together and the lights don't work. What am I doing wrong

Did you change the splice? because i don't get how someone takes a light down, puts a new one up, yet has a problem unless they changed the original wiring.
