Yes. You just connect by UART.

The way I prefer is to get a board to interface the two, particularly since xbees are 3.3V logic and the Axon/AxonII are 5V.

This is my preferred board: http://www.parallax.com/StoreSearchResults/tabid/768/txtSearch/xbee/List/0/SortField/4/ProductID/664/Default.aspx

And several others are discussed here: http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=9790.0
