How do you get your kids to listen?

I know that it sounds like a dumb question, but I can't get my dd 4 1/2 or ds 3 to listen to me. I mean when Im talking to them, not just giving orders, or asking them to do something but when they ask me a question I stop what I'm doing and answer them. They will both just look at me blankly and ask the question again and sometimes a third time, not hearing what im saying until I am raising my voice and being louder than I would like. I think the only times when they hear me more often is if I am offering dessert or something similar but even then its only 50% chance that they will respond to me. Any help, suggestions would be greatly appreciated as this is becoming frustrating and I do not enjoy raising my voice.
