With four lights and one switch wired the programming was started. Example code from Adafruit was copied and gutted. A simple program to randomly assign colors when the switch was pressed was uploaded. A delay was added so the colors would not flicker so quickly which made them appear almost white. A routine was added so the color cannot get so close to white. A burst of photos was taken to show the lights changing colors.
