My kids just broke off the top two feet of my prized 13 ft Blue Spruce while taking down the Christmas lights. Is there anything that I can do to keep the trunk growing upward?

It will probably fill out sideways more than up, and then it will grow upwards again. It should right itself over the whole of a year.
Call a nursery that sells blue spruce trees and get a professional opinion.
Your blue spruce has been established for 13 years. This pine tree should be fine without you having to do anything. Our top of a pine was ripped off by high winds and within 2 years the top grew back. The tree may look a bit odd but they're hardy and it will be fine. Cindy
