jquery animations - how to run at the same time?

How can I have these animations all run at the same time?  The $mask.fadeOut seems to run last regardless of the order of the commands (why is that?)

$MenuItems.stop(true,true).fadeOut(200); // sets display: none
$mask.fadeOut(200, function() { $mask.css('z-index', '0'); } );
$Toolbar.stop(true, true).animate({ backgroundColor: '#008000', height: ToolbarHeight }, 200 );

look up "queue false". You can use it on the animate() method, not sure about fadeOut.

$Toolbar.stop(true, true).animate({ backgroundColor: '#008000', height: ToolbarHeight }, {queue:false, duration: 200} );

Thanks - but no difference...

I am new to jquery but I thought I read somewhere that fadeout calls animation routine.  Is there a way to make an animation call directly to do the fadout (.animate instead of .fadeOut) so that I can also specify queue:false for the fadeout animation - and then would they both happen at the same time?
Experts Exchange is like having an extremely knowledgeable team sitting and waiting for your call. Couldn't do my job half as well as I do without it!

with css3:

                        '-webkit-transition': 'background-color 0.3s ease',
                        '-moz-transition': 'background-color 0.3s ease',
                        '-o-transition': 'background-color 0.3s ease',
                        '-ms-transition': 'background-color 0.3s ease',
                        'transition': 'background-color 0.3s ease'

                $Toolbar.css({ 'background-color': '#008000'}).stop(true, true).animate({'height': ToolbarHeight }, {queue:false, duration: 2000} );

css3 will only work in modern browsers (that excludes IE < 9), but it's more lightweight. depends what you're targeting..
