It's called three times?

Wow, this one is confusing. I am wondering why this code:

function doSomething(doit) {
    var color = "blue";
    if (doit) {
         color = "red";
        console.log("Color in if(){}",color)
        console.log("Color after if(){}",color)


is called three times when i only see "doSomething" twice - the true and the false?
