In brief: Yes
Yes it is. Your blood type a is because on of your parents was type a and the other type o.
Your siblings happened to get the recessive o allele from the type a parent and o from the other. You got the a allele from the a parent making you a. It's totally possible.

In brief: Yes
Yes, that is possible.
A is dominant so it is possible for your siblings to be type o with the same mother and father.
