What do I do with these kids?

I'm very frustrated today, well everyday really. I just cant get Eli to listen. Take this morning for instance. I was laying in bed when I say Eli start to walk into the bathroom he knows he isnt allowed in. I sat up and told him "Eli, go in your own bathroom."

He just stood there and looked at me. So I said again "Eli, you have your own bathroom, do not go in there." So what does he do? He shrugs his shoulders and walks into the bathroom anyways. This is basically what he does with anything I tell him to do. He just flat out ignores me. And its not like he doesn't immediately get into trouble for it. He spent the rest of his morning of his bed, got dressed on his bed and ate breakfast on his bed. I thought maybe that would be it, but no.
As soon as we got into the car and I am busy with putting the younger kids in their car seats he gets into my car and steals my pack of gum and shoves almost half the pack of gum into his mouth. When I get into the car and notice that he is fixedly looking out the window I ask him what he is doing. he just shakes his head, the I notice my gum package torn up all over the floor. I ask him if he has gum in his mouth and what does he do? Swallows the whole wad of gum and says "Nope". I am sooo mad at this point. I dont even know what to do with him anymore. Nothing I seem to do makes any difference. Any advise???
